Cover crops are plants grown in agricultural fields to increase system sustainability and maintain or improve productivity. Increasing the biodiversity of cropping systems and keeping the ground covered can lead to benefits such as nutrient recycling, erosion reduction, soil building, pest mitigation, etc. MSU is dedicated to understanding how cover crops best function and enhance various production systems through innovative research and extension efforts.
