TAKE PART IN AN INNOVATIVE

COVER CROP 

ON-FARM RESEARCH TRIAL

North Jersey RC&D is inviting farmers in northern New Jersey to participate in a two-year on-farm trial of innovative cover crop management strategies. Farmers enrolled in the project will try one of the following practices on a portion of their land: (1) planting into green cover crop, (2) roller-crimping cover crop to kill it, or (3) grazing cover crops.  As the study progresses, farmers will record what they did and what was the impact on cash crops; meanwhile, the staff at North Jersey RC&D will collect soil samples to assess the effect the practices had on soil health.
