Many cover crop benefits depend on successful cover crop growth, or biomass, but cover crop biomass can vary widely across farms because it is influenced by a range of environmental and management factors. Using citizen science, we’re partnering with farmers across the Great Lakes region to better understand how and why cover crop growth varies across real farms to help identify ways to maximize their benefits for soil health, water quality, and other environmental and agricultural outcomes.
