There has been a steady increase in the number of growers adopting cover crops in their production systems. This field day will showcase results from an experiment seeded last fall investigating performance (establishment, percent cover, biomass, etc.) of five cereal rye cultivars (Aroostook, Elbon, Prima, Wheeler, and Wrens Abruzzi) and two planting dates (16 Sept., 2015 and 13 Oct. 2015).
