North Central SARE Grantee-Produced Info Product
Continuous Living Cover Manual
Continuous Living Cover (CLC) means plant cover on the soil and roots in the ground all year long. Continuous Living Cover on farms is a step on the way to achieving a robust, resilient agriculture that delivers yields, healthy soil, clean water, and a good quality of life for rural and urban citizens. Developed by Green Lands Blue Waters with support from an NCR-SARE Professional Development Program grant, this publication focuses on agroforestry, cover crops, and perennial forage: these practices are well-established and proven in farming systems and in markets.
