Site Summary

The best management practices (BMPs) shown at this ONFARM site are the use of cover crops in a corn soybean rotation and an organic amendment (biosolid pellets) and a combination of both. The field site is gently rolling on very fine sand soils. The soil health goals are to maintain or improve soil organic matter levels and reduce compaction with cover crops.
