Cover Crops

     Cover crops are a useful biological tool used to maintain and preserve soil health. Cover crops prevent soil erosion, suppress weeds, protect soil from stormwater runoff, fix nitrogen, reduce disease, and much more. Different cover crops address different soil health problems. For example, to protect soil from rain or runoff, an ideal cover crop would consist of large leaves to head off rain and strong roots to gather surface soil.

     It is estimated that on average, the seeded cover crops were able to reduce soil erosion by approximately 2 tons/acre/year across these variable fields and crop rotations.
