"The Farmer & The City Girl Podcast Episode 006 - Cover Crops"

In this episode Carrie wants to know what cover crops are, what their actual purpose is and why they help regular harvested crops. Rob tries to keep it non-political, but eventually they discuss the pro vs anti cover crop guys.

Then they discuss the Milwaukee Crypto Outbreak and why Milwaukeeans would be happy if farmers got a stipend to plant cover crops to keep pollutants out of the water. And how the consumer would even make the correlation between cover crops that were involved and the food they purchase.

FEEDBACK REQUESTED: Do you plant cover crops? If so what kind and what state are you from?
