We don't have a specific experimental design in mind yet for this project. Recent work in Minnesota could serve as inspiration (click here). Questions like these have popped up: Do I need a nitrogen inhibitor with my manure if I use cover crops? Can I apply manure earlier in the fall if I have a cover crop out there? Will a cover crop affect manure nitrogen availability to corn?
We have enough funding for 3 sites which includes $550 research honorarium plus cover crop cost-share at $25/ac (cannot overlap with other public cost-share dollars). This project would occur during the 2019-20 cover crop-corn cycle.
