The “Continuous Living Cover Manual” is a guide to the Continuous Living Cover (CLC) practices that Green Lands Blue Waters promotes; agroforestry, biomass, cover crops, and perennial forage, and particularly focuses on how these practices can be integrated in multi-year rotations and located on the landscape to achieve optimal environmental and economic benefits. The Manual supports training of agriculture and conservation professionals to guide their work with farmers toward the implementation of these practices on the land.
