Beyond the Basics with Cover Crops: Webinar Explains Research on Cover Crop Mixes.

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. 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. As a result, the information will help set production goals complimented by cover crops.

In addition, her research studies have included cover crops, soil health, earthworms, no-till, and drainage and water quality over the past 35 years. She is also a founding member of the Midwest Cover Crops Council.

More about American Society of Agronomy:

A century ago, a group of individuals interested in agronomy met in Chicago on Dec. 31, 1907, for the purpose of organizing the American Society of Agronomy to “increase the dissemination of knowledge concerning soils and crops and the conditions affecting them.”

Further, the ASA is a progressive international scientific and professional society that empowers scientists, educators, and practitioners in developing, disseminating, and applying agronomic solutions to feed and sustain the world.
