Interseeding Cover Crops In Corn Silage Cropping Systems

With increasing focus on managing environmental impacts from agriculture, farmers are looking for ways to minimize environmental impacts without sacrificing crop productivity. Cover cropping is one strategy that has been promoted to help retain nutrients and soil on farms to minimize losses to the environment. However, with the short growing season we experience in this northern region, having adequate time in the fall to harvest corn silage and plant cover crops while conditions are optimal for their establishment is difficult. Therefore, farmers are interested in using interseeding techniques to establish cover crops into an actively growing corn crop.
