Cover crop entries were hand seeded at
locations into standing corn and soybeans
and evaluated for fall ground cover,
spring ground cover, and spring biomass
production.
KEY FINDINGS
• Cereal rye and mustard tended to
produce the most amount of fall ground
cover.
• Sufficient rainfall following cover crop
seeding is necessary for fall cover crop
growth and overwintering potential.
• Cereal rye was the only entry to
successfully overwinter and produce
spring growth and remains a strong
cover crop candidate even in the face of
a challenging winter.
