Abstract

Perennial groundcover (PGC) offers a tenable solution in reducing soil nitrate leaching and natural resources stewardship, as a system compatible with annual row crops grown on three-quarters of the 320 million total United States harvested cropland acres (USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service, 2017 Census of Agriculture). Nitrate leaching reductions by perennial covers generally are assumed to be greater than annual cover crops, because perennial covers are present on the landscape year-round.
