Study Initiated on Cover Crops in Corn and Soybean Systems

Researchers at UNL are working on a new study funded by the Nebraska Corn Board and Nebraska Soybean Board to investigate the effects of integrating cover crops into soybean and corn cropping systems. The team working on the project includes researchers in Lincoln, Concord, Clay Center, and North Platte with expertise in cropping systems, soil fertility, soil physics, weed science, agroecology, and ag economics. One of the group’s primary objectives is to determine how cover crops could affect corn and soybean yields under a range of cropping and weather conditions. The study is being conducted at two rain-fed (Mead and Concord) and two irrigated (Clay Center and Brule) sites.
