Cover cropping is a method of planting that helps build healthy soil and can be practiced in any farming operation. When carefully chosen and managed properly, cover crops can benefit production for farmers and help mitigate climate change.

This field day is being hosted at Covert Family Farms, a test site for the Summerland Research and Development Centre, where they have planted test plots of cover crops to conduct continued research on the functionality of species for farmers. This site is the most productive site for farmers in this region to visit and see a diversity of cover crop species.
