We are testing 5 different cover cropping options to determine which, if any, can fix either of two major soil challenges, compaction, or a zone of low pH. Follow this hashtag on social media to see study updates ~> #RootsBreakBarriers
We’ve planted several cover crop species and combinations to be able to assess root penetration of challenging zones at different sample dates.
We’ll be assessing above ground biomass and rooting characteristics.
The #GOResearchTeam is hard at work solving the problems that keep you up at night.
Soil columns that we packed to have bulk density considered root restrictive (1.7 g/cm3) is also restricting water movement through the column.
