Impact of Cover Crops on Nitrogen and Phosphorus Dynamics

August 25, 2022

2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Location: Online

Cover crops and reduced tillage practices affect nutrient and sediment losses from croplands and, as a result, impact water quality. NRCS and the University of Maryland’s Wye Research and Education Center (WyeREC) have partnered to improve accuracy in measuring these conservation outcomes through USDA’s Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP). In this Conservation Outcomes webinar, Dr. Staver will discuss key findings from his research on cover crop systems that achieve multiple objectives, including reducing nutrient losses from croplands.
