WINTER COVER CROPS - On-farm performance

Detailed Description

On-farm performance of winter cover crops is variable, ranging from minimal biomass due to poor agronomy and weather conditions; low biomass due to limited soil nutrients and late planting dates; medium biomass under typical growing conditions; and high biomass due to good agronomy, favorable weather, and abundant availability of soil nutrients. Satellite remote sensing can be used to measure cover crop performance throughout the agricultural landscape, linking performance measures to environmental outcomes.
