Multifunctional Cover Crop Cocktails for Organic Systems

Farmers have expressed an interest in using cover crop mixtures, or cocktails, but there has been little research and extension focused on helping farmers design successful mixtures. Our goal is to determine the agronomic, environmental, and economic benefits and costs of using cover crop mixtures in an organic corn-soy-wheat crop rotation.
