For the past 9 years, Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada Researchers and Harrow Research and Development Centre have been evaluating the efficacy of using legume cover crops in organically managed soybean-winter wheat/cover crop-corn rotation in Harrow, Ontario. They looked at cover crop biomass and biomass N accumulation; grain yields; impacts on selected soil health parameters; and an economic analysis was conducted for grain production under cover crop involved organically managed and no-cover crop conventional rotations.
Dr. Xueming Yang will share their results of this 5 year study.
