Objectives: To study the economic viability of overseeding rye and vetch into standing soybeans and sunflowers to decrease soil erosion, increase organic matter and provide nutrients for future corps.
Reults: Overseeding was completed in 1996 and project was extended for one year to gather soil and crop yield data.
