Williamsburg Soil and Water Conservation District

Cover Crop Workshop

On March 8, 2017 the Williamsburg Conservation District hosted a cover crop workshop in Kingstree.  The workshop helped demonstrate the benefits of using cover crops and how they protect and improve the soil.   

The workshop featured speakers Buzz Kloot, Carl Coleman, Rupert Burrows and Jeff Lucas who addressed weed control, herbicide management, farming with cover crops and making cover crops pay.  A demonstration of DNR’s rainfall simulator displayed the amount of water that is retained by cover crops.  With over fifty in attendance, the workshop was very successful.
