The best management practice (BMP) shown at this ONFARM site is a comparison of using a cover crop and including it with an organic amendment (biosolid pellets) at different rates. The field site is an undulating landscape on a clay loam soil with organic depressional areas. The soil health goals are to increase soil resilience and biological processes to reduce risk and improve profitability.
