Successfully Establishing Corn in Cover Crops

Grants and Contracts Details


Farmers around Kentucky are successfully planting corn into rye cover crop but have some questions about the best management practices. Each producer is trying his or her own methods, including strip tillage, early burndown, late burndown, crimping, starter fertilizer, in]furrow fungicides, etc. I have found a very strong graduate student and we would like to investigate some of these questions. Dan Quinn is current a Masterfs student a Michigan State and he has been working on nitrogen management in corn and wheat in Michigan. He has a research history that has prepared him for this research project.
