Use of Multispecies Cover Crops in a No-Till Conventional Corn/bean Rotation in Willcox, AZ

The Howard G. Buffett Foundation and the Center for Regenerative Agriculture have begun a joint five year study on 77 acres in Willcox, Arizona to research the effects on soil, crop yield, fertilizer reduction and elimination, pest management, and soil carbon capture through multispecies cover crops in a no-till conventional corn/bean rotation. Yields, soil carbon capture, insect damage, soil biome changes, and soil health indicators will be monitored evaluated, and summarized for publication as well as farmer field days for dissemination of results.
