April 15 | Conservation Learning Labs – Exploring the Impact of Cover Crops on Water Quality

Mark Licht, Iowa State University Assistant Professor and Extension Cropping Systems Specialist, and Matt Helmers, Iowa Nutrient Research Center Director will be discussing cover crops and their key practices within the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy. Cover crops offer a wide range of benefits including reducing soil erosion, improving infiltration and soil health, weed suppression and grazing opportunities. Best management practices for spring management of cover crops are key to maximizing those benefits and reducing potential yield reductions.
