Soil Health (Tillage, Residue Management., Cover Crops), High Yield
For broadcast treatments, a battery-powered hand-held spinner spreader was used to seed 5 feet wide at a time. Plots were 30-40 ft long and were harvested with a plot combine on Oct. 19. Biomass sampling was performed in late-Nov.
Results: There was no significant soybean yield difference due to the Hairy vetch cover crop.
