Research Project: Developing Cover Crop Decision Support Tools and Meta-analysis for NRCS and the Northeast, Southeast, and Midwest Cover Crop Councils

Location: Sustainable Agricultural Systems Laboratory

Project Number: 8042-22000-166-21-I
Project Type: Interagency Reimbursable Agreement

Start Date: Aug 30, 2016
End Date: Sep 30, 2018

Objective:
Develop and update cover crop decision support tools being designed as part of a collaborative multi-organizational effort. These regionally adjusted tools will be an integral part of soil health management planning and implementation, and will co-evolve with standards for comprehensive soil health assessment.

Approach:
The analyst hired by the ARS will develop decision support tools used by the NECCC and will also serve to conduct meta-analysis and synthesis of existing cover crop data.
