Reach of Cooperator Research

Last week, we released a new research report, “Cereal Rye Cover Crop Termination Date Ahead of Soybeans, 2016 Update.” The cooperators involved, Jeremy Gustafson and Jack Boyer, saw no ill effects of planting soybeans within 5 days of terminating a cereal rye cover crop. They were both able to reap some cost savings in weed control (Jeremy in 2016, Jack in 2015).

The report ended up spurring a lot of good discussion on the online ag forum New AgTalk. Here’s a link to the initial post in that thread:

A summary of and link to the report can be found in this blog post from last week:
