There are many perceived benefits and challenges when it comes to implementing cover crops in row crop systems. These perceptions are often based upon educational opportunities and experiences with cover crops and others who use cover crops. Through our research by surveying farmers in South Carolina, we aim to better understand the barriers to cover crop education and find the best methods to educate farmers on cover crops to increase the implementation rates.
