First-year results of a three-year study on weed suppression and yield results with regard to termination timing of cereal rye and hairy vetch cover crops.
Producers can now estimate the biomass, water use and nitrogen uptake of cereal rye — one of the most common cover crop species in the U.S. — using the new Cover Crop Biomass Calculator. (CropWatch file photo)
