Spring: Rowbot-seeded Cover Crops Looking Good

Many thanks to Elliot Lagacy at the Illinois Department of Agriculture for sharing this picture of a demonstration strip interseeded by Rowbot:

The thick green strips were interseeded by Rowbot in August 2014, while the rest of the field was seeded aerially. This is just one field and one year, but the results sure are exciting.

Our thanks go out to grower Dale Stierwalt as well as the NRCS, Department of Ag., and the Champaign County SWCD for setting up this field and giving others a glimpse of what's next on the farm.
