Week 2: Can we have it all? Planting Green for Weed Control

This week’s video is all about cover crop termination timing, residual herbicides, and yield. Follow along with Kolby Grint, MS candidate in the UW-Madison Cropping Systems Weed Science Program, as he gives a brief update on his research projects investigating the impact of fall-seeded cereal rye cover crops on weed control in corn and soybean fields in Wisconsin.

Week 3: Small Grains, Big Gains

Week 4: Do cover crops effect residual herbicides?

Follow along with Nick Arneson, Weed Science Outreach Specialist in the UW-Madison Cropping Systems Weed Science Program, as he gives a brief overview of research experiments evaluating the value of cereal rye cover crops in non-GMO, food-grade soybean.
