To demonstrate a novel cropping management system based on holistic approaches which include no-tillage, cover crop and gypsum soil amendment to enhance soil quality, crop productivity, and environmental sustainability for U.S. soybean farmers.
Establish demo plots of the soybean production innovations (including gypsum applications, tillage, rotations, and cover crops) at major farm and equipment shows including Ag Progress Days in Pennsylvania. Project personnel will staff these shows to share the benefits of the agronomic management practices and their positive impact on soil quality and climate change.
