I was going to use a snarky title for this, like urbanites find out about no-till farming, but instead I'll just refer to an article on Wonkblog. From there a link to a Philpott piece on cover crops and no-till. I remember when ASCS offered cost-sharing for cover crops, back in the late 60's, something which was killed by the Nixon administration. (I'm trying to remember what the CED said--he was aggressively promoting the practices, I think for workload, not specifically for the conservation benefits.
