Working to promote soil health

Twain Butler

The Noble Research Institute and Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research are working to promote soil health through the development/adoption of new cover crops across the United States. The project’s current focus is to identify species with the greatest potential as cover crops.

Species include small grains (wheat, rye, oat and triticale), annual legumes (hairy vetch, winter peas and clovers) and brassicas (turnips, radishes, kale and mustards).

Field studies are being conducted at five sites: Maryland for the Northeast, North Carolina for the Southeast, Oklahoma for the Southern Plains, Nebraska for the Northern Plains and Missouri for the Midwest.
