  WEBINAR: Wildlife Benefits from Cover Crops on Working Lands  
(Virginia Cooperative Extension)

As we continue to work with producers to enhance soil health on working lands, many producers and landowners wish to incorporate cover crops that benefit wildlife into their rotation. This webinar will describe some of the limitations and opportunities in adding soil health management practices with wildlife.

Cover crops play a key role in improving soil health by adding diversity both above and below ground, keeping the soil covered protecting it from erosion and excessive evaporation, and adding living roots to grow throughout most of the year. These activities help to foster a favorable habitat in which those soil organisms that are most beneficial to food and fiber production can thrive. These same principles also help to create a more favorable habitat for above ground wildlife allowing them to flourish. This webinar will focus on how landowners can benefit wildlife by incorporating cover crops into their cropping system. The presenter will include general information as well as species specific examples.
