This study is to determine the benefits of an under-seeded clover crop into barley compared to a post-harvest seeded crop of forage peas. The aim is to test ability of each cover crop to fix nitrogen, sequester soil nitrogen, contribute organic matter and reduce weed growth and soil erosion. The primary objective is to determine which crop would provide the greatest fertility boost to the subsequent crop. The secondary objective is to determine the erosion control (wind & water) and spring cultivation cost impact of a legume cover crop.
