At the 2020 Fort Wayne Farm Show, the concept of interseeding cover crops into standing corn was promoted to improve soil health and water quality. The SWCD contacted producers to further promote the program. Over twelve test plots were studied throughout the year; Mike Werling led this program, funded by a Clean Water Indiana (CWI) grant, with education, program promotion, and the use of the interseeder.

Overall, the farmers were impressed with the process mentioning that they wanted to own their own rig and start interseeding for themselves.
