NLAE Innovative Research on Sustainable Intensification of Agriculture
NLAE’s Rob Malone and his collaborators are at the forefront of this. In a recent study published in the prestigious journal of Environmental Research Letters lead scientist Rob Malone and his colleagues have shown that winter rye cover crop between rotations of corn and soybean can reduce nitrate losses, sequester carbon, and provide a source of renewable natural gas. Their work has received a lot of attention and has been showcased in a variety of scientific magazines and websites.
