Illinois Cover Crop Initiative

Cover crops are a critical piece of soil health systems and provide a plethora of benefits to fields and farms. Continue reading below for available programs and other cover crop resources.

Programs Available

As of 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 16, the official 2022 ICCI program sign-up will close. Please continue to fill out the application to be placed on a waitlist for available acres.

The Illinois Cover Crop Initiative program provides payments to farmers for incorporating cover crops, no-tillage, and/or emissions scoring into their operations. This flexible program allows farmers to enroll acres where practices have previously been used and to choose from 1, 2, 3, or 4-year contracts. Carbon assets generated from participation in this program are being claimed by ADM.
