Short-Term Effects of Cover Crops in Soil Microbial Characteristics and Biogeochemical Processes Across Actively Managed Farms

Agricultural soils are largely degraded or under threat of degradation. Given a growing human population and the subsequent need to feed this population, agricultural practices must maintain productivity and soil quality. Cover cropping regimes are a management approach that aims to address these dual goals. Although the use of cover crops has been linked to many positive effects on soil quality and crop yields, few studies have examined their effects on soil microbial community structure and function under active farm management.
