SDSU Extension and the United State Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Services will host a demonstration day for precision cover crops on the campus of South Dakota State University campus research plot (44.325482, -96.776982 to 44.323224, -96.768311), on July 20 from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. The field is located northeast of the baseball field, south of Highway 14 and between Jackrabbit Avenue and 22nd Avenue.
The main goal of the precision cover cropping system is to demonstrate a logical and sensor-based, variable seeding rate and mix selection in cover cropping systems. This project will improve the benefits of the conventional cover cropping systems related to farm profits, soil health, and environmental quality.
