Video: High Clearance Cover Crop Seeding

Dan Perkins, Jasper County (Indiana) SWCD, put together a series of videos demonstrating the use of a high clearance sprayer to apply cover crops.  You can watch those videos below. The last video is a Power Point presentation where Dan answers several questions he's been getting on the topic:

  • What are a couple types of high clearance sprayers available for cc seeding?
  • Are corn ears and stalks knocked down during seeding?
  • How much yield loss from end row turning?
  • Can we seed into soybeans?
