National Wildlife Federation has extended the deadline for submitting applications for farmer cover crops champions and outreach cover crop champions – local and regional cover crop leaders who can provide region-specific information and farming knowledge to farmers and crop advisors.
Selected applicants will receive benefits in the form of financial support for time and travel, access to an elite network of other cover crop champions, and training for media and outreach.
Funding for this initiative is limited to certain states in the Mississippi River Basin, so we can only accept applications from champions working primarily in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, with consideration of limited applications in South Dakota, Nebraska, Indiana, and Ohio.
Please fill out the NWF Cover Crop Champion Application, and submit to Lara Bryant, email@example.com, by Friday, May 24, 2013.
