These may be unprecedented times, but the seasons march on and planting season has already begun for those with small grains in the rotation. The timing of the COVID-19 crisis and its effect on the marketplace hasn't left farmers much room to change cropping plans.
One tweak that is still possible is to keep a rye or wheat cover crop for livestock feed or your own cover crop seed production instead of planting corn or beans. I've included some resources below on this topic.
If you're adapting to these times with strategies like planting whole fields to cover crops this year; keeping cover crop rye or wheat and harvesting it; or trying out other field crops (sunflowers? field peas? millet? dry beans?)
be sure to use the hashtag #practicalresilience when you share these stories on social media.
Good Luck Planting,
