The best management practices (BMPs) shown at this ONFARM site are the use of cover crops in a rotation and an organic amendment (horse manure compost). The field site is a gently undulating landscape with cross draws on a coarse loamy soil. The soil health goals are to reduce water erosion, sequester more carbon, improve nutrient-cycling and reduce input costs.
