Cover Crop Trials For Soil Improvement
57 pm  Brattleboro Extension Office, Brattleboro, VT

The Brattleboro UVM Extension office fields are home to a 3/4 acre demonstration of 20 different cover crop plots, which have been rotated with different species over the past 4 years. Come see how different clovers, vetch, sudax, millet, soybean, cowpea, and more unusual cover crops, like sesbania and crotolaria, have performed.
