The overall goal of the project is to determine the influence of cover crops and P fertilizer management on water quality and crop yields in a corn/soybean rotation.
1. Determine the effect of winter cover crops on field?scale water balance, soil moisture, and crop growth.
2. Determine the effect of winter cover crops on runoff volume, sediment, and nutrient losses.
3. Determine the effect of winter cover crops on P loss from fall broadcast vs. spring injected P fertilizer management.
