The best management practices (BMPs) shown at this ONFARM site are the use of cover crops in a rotation, an organic amendment (biosolid pellets) and a combination of both. The field site incorporates a uniform hillslope on a silt loam till soil. The soil health goals are to improve nutrient cycling to reduce fertility inputs including biosolids.
2020: Winter wheat under no-till management with an underseeded cover crop and/or organic amendment
