As the harvest season continues, fields across the state are beginning to come alive with cover crops. The Cover Crop Working Group mixed species demonstration site in Nashua is among those fields coming alive this fall – just in time for Halloween!
During a visit to the site in early October, the cover crops had begun germinating even before the corn and soybeans had been harvested. In the upcoming weeks, the team will be heading out to evaluate the cover crop stand and collect soil samples for total nitrogen, total carbon, pH and total organic matter. Check out photos from Nashua below and read our earlier post To Mix or Not to Mix My Cover Crop Species for more information about the project.
