Cover crops have the potential to do many things for no-tillers, one of the most important being improved nutrient cycling in no-tilled soils that can lead to input savings and a healthier bottom line. But many no-tillers are spending $25-$30 an acre on covers and still spending too much on fertilizer due to poor nutrient management, says David Brandt.
The veteran no-tiller and cover crop expert from Carroll, Ohio, will help no-tillers understand how they can get more ROI from covers through making the proper adjustments to their farm’s nutrient program to reduce fertilizer costs without sacrificing yield. Brandt will also share research data on 25 different corn hybrids seeded into high-biomass cover crops on his farm to examine differences in corn emergence, stands and yield.
