March 22, 2022 | Kriss Nelson

Are you interested in establishing cover crops on your farm? If so, the Iowa Soybean Association’s (ISA) Research Center for Farming Innovation (RCFI) has you covered.

With the help of university specialists and farmers who have found success with cover crops, RCFI recently published a guide for farmers interested in implementing a cover crop system.

“There have been several research discoveries about cover crop management over the past five years,” says Scott Nelson, ISA senior field services program manager. “This guide summarizes these advances in a farmer-friendly format.”

Advances in Cover Crop Management includes steps to establishing cover crops, increasing profitability, terminating a cover crop, managing pests, establishing a profitable cash crop and managing soil fertility in cover crop systems.
