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: 8042-22000-167-024-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: May 15, 2019
End Date: Sep 22, 2021

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.

The analyst hired will develop decision support tools used by the Northeast Cover Crops Council (NECCC) and other regional CCCs and will also serve to conduct meta-analysis and synthesis of existing cover crop data.
