Each episode features experts discussing issues like managing herbicide resistant weeds, improving soil health by reducing compaction and erosion, improving soil organic matter and water holding capacity, and cover crops as a forage. This is a podcast for farmers who may be considering using cover crops and are looking to solve problems on the farm. MCCC looks at practical on-farm solutions and talk with a variety of different farmers across the Midwest.
