Tour: UMass Cover Crop Research Plot

Learn about several cover-cropping research projects occurring at UMass Amherst, with visual context. Projects include no-till with mixed cover crops in sweet corn, cover crops for grazing season extension and nematode management, and legumes contributing to the nitrogen needs of brewing barley. We will also introduce new cover crops, such as fava beans and sunhemp.
