Cover Crop Mixtures for Soil Health

Cover cropping is a best practice for soil health. Does scientific research prove the benefits of multi-species cover crop mixtures? What kind of challenges do they present? How can we design cover crop mixtures tailored to our specific production system? Local research on mixtures of winter-killed cover crops, including forage radish, will be presented.
