Drs. Karl Williard, Jon Schoonover of Southern Illinois University and Gurbir Singh and Gurpreet Kaur from the Delta Research and Extension Center at Mississippi State University had their original research published in Vadose Zone Journal, published by the Soil Science Society of America.
It just takes a research meeting in San Antonio to bring the NREC-funded research to the forefront of the agronomy world.
We have worked closely with Cover Crop experts and our partners at the Illinois Fertilizer & Chemical Association to publish an updated Cover Crop Guide. Our original Cover Crop Guide was widely distributed and helped farmers make informed decisions about getting started with Cover Crops. This guide is updated with the latest science and includes links to other resources which can help make the best decisions.
