Cover Crop Funding for Farmers

With wheat finally off the fields, it’s time to consider cover crops.

Cover crops are planted in between growing seasons to protect soil. They prevent erosion and nutrient loss, increase nitrogen and carbon, and improve soil tilth.

Grants are available to farmers in Peel, Wellington and Dufferin for cover crop and other soil and water improvement projects.
