Corn-Soybean-Wheat / Soybean vs Conventional Corn-Soybean
This 16-page Cover Crop Guide was created through the collaboration of NREC-funded researchers. Together they pooled their research results and compiled the information so that new adopters can easily understand the technical aspects (why, what, when, how much, where and other considerations) of planting cover crops. NREC, along with the researchers, is encouraging producers to “think a systems approach” when planting cover crops, rather than thinking of cover crops only as an additional input.

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.
Dr. Shalamar Armstrong’s research near Bloomington, Ill. takes a close look how adjusting N timing overcame the usual yield lag in corn planted into cereal rye cover crop.
