Interseeder Program


Interseeding is an agronomic practice that plants cover crops into standing row crops. Often used for corn, it allows a cover crop time to germinate before the cash crop is harvested, thereby ensuring the soil is never bare and susceptible to erosion. The Genesee River Coalition owns two six-row interseeders manufactured by Interseeder Technologies, Inc. that may be rented by farmers in the Genesee River watershed at a cost of $15/acre. One interseeder also has the capability to be used as a no-till drill for planting standard cover crops. More information about the program, seed mixes and chemical programs are available at participating districts.
