- Agronomic: rye
- Animal Production: feed/forage
- Crop Production: cover crops, no-till, nutrient management
This project will evaluate the effect of harvesting winter rye as a green chop forage in the spring on establishment and growth of interseeded legumes. Such a system could significantly reduce run-off following corn silage harvest and would provide a source of forage 2-3 months earlier than the traditional corn-silage to spring-seeded legume rotation.
