Penn State aims to set an example by planting cover crops this fall

Posted: August 27, 2009

Seeking to be a role model for farmers in the state and across the Northeast, Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences will undertake aerial seeding of a cover crop in late August or early September. This year a cover crop mixture of winter canola, yellow sweet clover and crimson clover will be applied aerially on 200 acres of corn and soybeans located northeast of the University Park campus in Centre County.
