New and continued research on cover crops in a variety of crop rotations is occurring at several sites in Kansas. Projects range from no-till and minimum tillage vegetable production to soil health and water use. Over twenty Kansas collaborators have worked to add Kansas to the MCCC’s Cover Crop Selection Tool which is now available to the public. Many cover crop field days and meetings occur throughout the state with cooperation between Kansas State University Research and Extension, the Kansas NRCS, county Conservation Districts, and non-profit organizations such as the Kansas Alliance of Wetlands and Streams.
