2017 CRC Nesting Cover Study—Last Call for Acres

2017 CRC Nesting Cover Study—Last Call for Acres

We welcome having more cover-cropped fields that will be fallowed in the upcoming growing season to include in our 2017 study.  We are trying to build a case for why beneficial nesting practices should be strongly supported as part of our conservation programs with the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

Requested Action

If you have cover crops that you will idle, please send a quick note to Paul Buttner at pbuttner@calrice.org.  We may even be able to offer a small incentive payment to include your fields and allow biologists to monitor duck nesting activity.
