Presented by: Jack Huerkamp

Means to improve corn production practices through crop rotation and cover crop systems exist, but implementing these strategies in mid-southern corn production can be challenging. The objective of this session is to discuss practical applications for cover crops and crop rotational strategies in Mississippi corn production systems.
