The best management practices (BMPs) shown at this ONFARM site are the use of cover crops in a rotation and an organic amendment (solid beef manure) and a combination of both. The field site is very gently rolling on very fine sandy loam soils. The soil health goals are to minimize compaction and improve soil life to improve productivity and profitability.
2020: Soybeans under minimum tillage management preceded by organic amendment and followed by a cover crop
2021: Sugar beets strip till followed by cover crop
2022: Winter wheat under no-till management
