Cover crop root contributions to soil carbon in a no-till corn bioenergy cropping system

Crop residues are potential biofuel feedstocks, but residue removal may reduce soil carbon (C). The inclusion ofa cover crop in a corn bioenergy system could provide additional biomass, mitigating the negative effects of resi-due removal by adding to stable soil C pools.
