Warm Season Cover Crop Growth
By: David Lamm, Healthy Soils for Sustainable Cotton at the Soil Health Institute
Mr. David Lamm, Project Manager, Healthy Soils for Sustainable Cotton at the Soil Health Institute, and Mr. Jason Carter, Richland County South Carolina farmer, discuss the results of his summer cover crop mix one month after planting, identify various cover crop species, the benefits he is hoping to achieve and the impact of moisture on cover crop stand. Soil Health Institute Virtual Field Days are a production of the Healthy Soils for Sustainable Cotton project of the Soil Health Institute. Healthy Soils for Sustainable Cotton seeks to expand adoption of soil health management systems on producers’ farms through farmer-focused education and training events delivered by Soil Health Institute scientists, partnering soil health technical specialists and farmer mentors producing cotton using soil health promoting practices. The project aims to improve soil health and expand sustainable cotton production. Additionally, the project seeks to quantify, expand, and verify the productivity and environmental benefits of the soil health management practices used by cotton producers. Healthy Soils for Sustainable Cotton is supported through the generosity of the Wrangler® brand, the VF Corporation Foundation, and the Walmart Foundation.
