Abstract

The use of cover crops has numerous environmental benefits. However, farmers remain hesitant to change their current production practices mainly due to cost of implementation and potential yield drag. Aiming to design best management practices (BMPs) for the adoption of cereal rye between soybean and corn cropping system, this trial was conducted to learn about the effects of different seeding methods and rates of a cereal rye cover crop, and different timings on its termination prior to corn planting.
