2021 Report: Building Knowledge about Wisconsin’s Cover Crops- Farmer Research Project.

In summer of 2021, the Cover Crops Research and Outreach Project (CCROP) launched the second year of a citizen science survey project to gain knowledge about cover crops used on Wisconsin farms. This project resulted in data being collected from twenty-five farms. This data included cover crop species established, previous crop in rotation, planting method and date, plans for spring management, and much more.
