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.
There was no significant yield difference between soybeans broadcast with red clover. Their was however significant differences in cover crop biomass by landscape position, which did not significantly alter soybean yields.
This project was funded by the South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council.
