Dr. Karen Renner, Professor in the MSU Plant, Soils and Microbial Sciences Department and graduate student Aaron Brooker have been conducting research into interseeding cover crops into corn between the V1 and V7 growth stages. Previous years’ research found the use of cover crops does not reduce corn yield, and is an effective strategy to improve soil health and suppress winter annual weeds. Their current work, described in this video, builds on this research and looked at different seeding rates and different cover crop mixtures.
