- Agronomic: soybeans
- Crop Production: cover crops
- Production Systems: general crop production
Tony Potenza will be working with a neighboring farmer and will develop and test a method of interseeding cover crops into organic soybeans at the time of last cultivation as a way to minimize erosion. Potenza aims to develop a practical method for seeding off the cultivator that others farmers can easily adopt, including developing guidelines for seed placement and distribution, seeding rates, machinery design and calibration.
