TCM: Cover crop survey connects researchers and farmers

September 28, 2021  By Top Crop Manager

In late 2018/early 2019, Yvonne Lawley, a professor in the plant science department at the University of Manitoba, set out to learn more about what early adopters are doing with cover crops across the Prairies, as well as challenges and barriers to adopting the practice. Callum Morrison, a University of Manitoba PhD student, joined the project and brought the project’s connection with farmers to the next level.

Lawley and Morrison were featured in an August 2020 episode of Inputs, the podcast by Top Crop Manager, to discuss preliminary results of the 2019 survey and cover crop recommendations for Prairie growers. Now, nearing the culmination of their study, the two return to chat with Top Crop Manager and Fruit & Vegetable assistant editor Alex Barnard to discuss outcomes gleaned from the survey and the future of the project. |LISTEN IN
