Brassica cover crop trial in Michigan. Planting date August 13, 2010
Effects of cover crops, rotation, and biological control products on soil properties and productivity in organic vegatable production in the Northeastern US
The potential benefits of different covercrops, biological control amendments, and vegetable rotation on soil chemical and biological properties, crop development and yield, and disease development in organic vegetable production, as represented by legume(green bean, Phaseolus vulgaris), cucurbit (yellow summer squash, Cucurbita pepo), and solanaceous (sweet pepper, Capsicum annuum) vegetable crops, were evaluated in a multi-year […]
Dispersal of natural enemies from buckwheat cover crop plots embedded within a southern California vineyard during spring and summer was investigated by using an arthropod mark-capture technique.
Researchers with the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture are conducting experimental trials that may help the state’s watermelon growers improve their yields while improving the soil and reducing pest pressure.
