The Plant Cover Crops website is owned and operated by The CISCO Companies, located in Indianapolis, IN. We distribute seed across a five-state area. We have a sales team in the area and forage agronomists on staff to help answer your cover crop questions.
This site is dedicated solely to cover crops. It was originally published in 2008 by Dave Robison, one of CISCO’s long-time forage agronomists. Dave is now with Legacy Seeds, and CISCO is proud to partner with him on many of our alfalfa varieties. Our other farming website, CISCO Farm Seed, is dedicated solely to the “small seed” part of your farming operation, namely hay, pasture, summer annuals, and yes – even cover crops. It’s a great place to go to get answers to your forage questions.
Again, if you have any questions, just click here to contact us.
