A St. Louis startup agriculture company says it’s developed a cover crop that will eventually generate income for Iowa and other Midwest farmers while helping mitigate climate change.

CoverCress is attracting investment from agriculture industry heavy-hitters including Bunge and Bayer, and plans to make its “cash cover crop” available on limited acreage in Illinois this fall before expanding to commercial-scale acreage next year.
