Helpful Links:The Iowa Cover Crops Working Group is coordinated by Iowa Learning Farms. This may be the single best Iowa source for state cover crop information.
The Midwest Cover Crops Council (MCCC) may be the single best, overall, comprehensive source for just about everything on cover crops. A majority of university research is eventually assimilated onto this website.
Practical Farmers of Iowa: PFI lists research reports on their website here (or go to “on-Farm Research” at the top of the page, and then “Research Reports” in the drop menu). You can search at this page of the website for “cover crop” related reports.
