By farmers, for farmers.
Green Cover Seed is a family-owned business with a history that runs deep in Nebraska’s soil. Brothers, Keith and Brian Berns utilized their farming experience and a plot of land owned by their father to begin experimenting with new farming practices. Keith and Brian have grown their business into a 2000+ acre farm in South Central Nebraska that has used 100% no-till methods for over 12 years.
The Berns brothers started Green Cover Seed as a way to share the benefits of cover crops and no-till farming with the community. They’ve worked hard over the past several years to research and incorporate their methods in their own fields and help others do the same. What they’ve found are exciting and efficient methods that can offer an increase in soil structure, organic matter, biological life, water infiltration rate, nutrient cycling, and wildlife.
