Warm Season Cover Crop Adaptation Study Trials Using Crotalaria Entries for Southern Louisiana

There is an increased interest in sunn hemp entries as a cover crop for sugarcane production in southern Louisiana. Incorporating sunn hemp into a sugarcane cropping system can control soil erosion, improve soil quality by increasing soil organic matter and providing partial N for crop growth, and suppressing weeds on fallowed sugarcane fields. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the growth characteristics and production attributes of commercially available sunn hemp entries for southern Louisiana sugarcane cropping systems.
