Evaluation of Winter Cover Crops on Nutrient Cycling, Soil Quality and Yield for Production Systems in the Mid-South

The practice of planting cover crops during fallow periods has increased due to the benefits provided to the soil system, including improved nutrient cycling, addition of organic matter and a more diverse soil fauna resulting in better crop yield and an overall improvement of soil health. Research has shown that microbial activity is sensitive to changes in management practices and is a good indicator of whether the changes are benefiting the production system.
