Soil Health Partnership studying weed control benefits of cover crops
The Soil Health Partnership has released case study research on the weed control benefits of cover crops.
Maria Bowman is the lead scientist for the Soil Health Partnership and National Corn Growers Association. In an interview with Brownfield during Commodity Classic she says they have found farmers who spend money on cover crop seed can save on herbicides throughout the growing season and have a better net benefit per acre as a result of that weed control.
