Performance targets from proposal:
By increasing their soil health through the use of appropriate cover crops, participating growers will:
Increase yield by 10% on targeted fields due to better tilth, lower root disease, lower weed pressure and more effective cultivation.
Increase the value of their early crops by 10% due to more timely planting and to higher quality.
Reduce their applied N fertilizer by 20% due to nitrogen scavenging leaching.
