You’ve moved beyond the beginning.  What’s the research tell us about cover crops mixes?  We hear that cover crops benefit water quality and soil health so the speakers will discuss research results and working examples with establishment and termination with an eye on advanced cover cropping in the eastern corn belt.  The information will help set production goals complimented by cover crops.

American Society of Agronomy webinar series sponsored by North Central Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE). Additional support provided by Practical Farmers of Iowa.

You’ve set the goals, established the cover crops and as you walk through the fields what are key indicators to look for that impact management decisions.  Cover crops should complement the cash crop production and there are practical things to do that will help ensure that happens.  A farmer with working experiences teams up with a researcher to discuss what farmers and agronomists should know for spring time management of cover crops.
