Now is the time to plant Cover Crops!
Fall is upon us and for many of us it's time to plant cover crops. We had 11 farmers participate in our fly on cover crop program this year, and we spread 111,787 lbs. of Rye seed on 1290 acres. If you did not participate in the program we strongly encourage you to look into planting a cover crop to protect your fields and build your soils. For more information contact Linda Yeager or Tom Kistler at 330-627-9852.

Have you considered backyard conservation?
Whether you have acres in the country, an average-sized suburban yard, or a tiny plot in the city, you can help protect the environment and add beauty and interest to your surroundings. We encourage landowners to consider applying some of the same conservation practices that farmers have been using for years. These practices protect our soil, water, air and wildlife while also providing beauty and enjoyment for the homeowner
