It says the aerial application is a quick and effective way to plant winter cover crops.

Cover crops are used to manage soil erosion and nutrient runoff. It results in keeping the Little Miami and Ohio rivers cleaner.

You will most likely see the plane in the southern and eastern parts of Warren County.
