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 flat on clay loam soils. The soil health goals are to increase soil organic matter levels and improve water infiltration.
2020: Corn under minimum tillage followed by organic amendments and/or a cover crop
2021: Soybeans under vertical till management
2022: Corn under vertical tillage followed by a cover crop
