Cover Crop Experimentation to Achieve Optimum Soil Health in New Jersey

Updated: May 25, 2018

Natural Resources and Conservation Service (Conservation and Innovation Grant)

Much of the intense experimentation of cover crops has been carried out in the Mid- West. It is important for New Jersey to have a baseline developed so the NJ NRCS Soil Health Initiative continues to positively impact the landscape. This project will evaluate different methods of cover crop establishment. Many of the proposed practices are applicable for farmers to adopt, but more experimentation and analysis is needed to identify the least cost, yet most effective way to seed cover crops. Through this project we will communicate the data obtained to the agricultural community for their acceptance and implementation on their own farms.
