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

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. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis- first come, first served. Carbon assets generated from participation in this program are being claimed by ADM.
