"It’s not a simple thing to look at a 2,000-acre grain operation and say, 'let’s incorporate cover crops.'"

New article feat #ontag farmer @farmerstrang and #UofG @RidgetownCampus prof Richard Vyn on the complexity of adopting #covercrops

NEW! study summary from @karidunfield lab in collab with @soilecologyUMan: A case of how past soil management can lead to luxury phosphorus uptake, comparing #manure/#fertilizer use efficiency. Have a read ⤵️
