Please take an important survey about cover crops to help improve outreach and inform cover crop incentive programs to better serve farmers.
Did you know the Western region now has a cover crops council? The Western Cover Crops Council aims to promote the successful use of cover crops in our diverse agricultural systems. In order to do that, we are asking farmers/ranchers like YOU to share your perspectives on cover crops. Whether you plant them now, planted them in the past or have not ever planted them—your perspective is important!
The survey is being conducted by partners at the University of Idaho, Oregon State University, and Boise State University with funding from the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (SARE). This brief survey will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. The survey is confidential, and your responses cannot be linked to you. Upon completion you will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for one of 10, $50 Amazon gift cards. Odds of winning are approximately 1 in 75.
Please take a few minutes and share your thoughts, experience, and expertise with us! It is only with help from farmers like you that we can understand how to best guide cover crop programs for the west.
Here is a link to the survey.
If you know of other events that may be relevant to this list, please feel free to bring it to my attention.

Events greater than ~120 miles from Clark County, WA are generally not included, but occasional exceptions are made for unique, rare, and/or high-demand statewide/regional events.
