Illinois farmer increasing cover crop acres this fall

Brownfield’s Rhiannon Branch interviews Doug Winter during Trade Talk at the 2022 National Association of Farm Broadcasting Convention in Kansas City.

A southeast Illinois farmer is planting more cover crops this fall to farm more sustainably with less inputs.

Doug Winter of Mill Shoals in White County tells Brownfield they’re transitioning their 3500-acre corn, soybean and wheat operation to 75% no-till, with rye grass and rapeseed planted for cover on 600 acres. He says that should reduce their need for pricey fertilizers.
