Cover crops are integral parts of whole farm systems that indude corn (Zea mays L.), but there is a lack of synchrony between cover crop N release and corn N uptake. This synchrony may be enhanced by varying the cover crop spring desiccation time and subsequent residue management. A field study was established to determine (i) the effect of rye (Secale cereale L.), hairy vetch (Vicia villosa Roth), and rye + hairy vetch spring desiccation timing on cover crop biomass, N content, and C:N ratio… CONTINUE READING
