A Skagit Conservation District pilot program helped 10 Skagit County farmers plant 439 acres of cover crops this fall.
Cover crops are not grown for profit. They are planted after crops that are grown for profit are harvested, and help farmers maintain healthy soils and offer other benefits.
Emmett Wild, senior farm planner with the conservation district, said cover crops play an important role.
