Site Summary

The best management practice (BMP) shown at this ONFARM site is a comparison of different cover crop mixes. The field site has a sloping knoll to a nearly level floodplain on a loam to silt loam soil. The soil health goals are to increase and maintain organic matter on hills and reduce compaction on flats to improve water retention and productivity.
