Cover crops can be planted amid flood

Marion County farmers who could not plant their crops because of flooded or wet fields can sign up for technical and financial assistance from the Natural Resources and Conservation Service to plant cover crops on the affected acres instead of letting fields go fallow and uncovered. The deadline is July 26.

Farmers can apply by visiting the USDA Service Center, 301 Eisenhower Dr., Marion, or calling (620) 382-3714.
