Cover crop trial update: Story County ISA research trial progress

May 19, 2021

In December, we kicked off a cover crop trial with ISA farmer member Pat Murken and field services team member Teresa Middleton. As we continue into the growing season, The State of Soy caught up with Teresa and Pat to see where the trial is, what results are already evident and next steps this harvest. Spoiler? Murken says he's been able to reduce N application by 25 lbs/acre in the 12 years he's been implementing cover crops.
