Cover crops provide multiple benefits, including reduced soil crusting, increased infiltration rates, reduced compaction, weed suppression, and nutrient cycling.

Combining cover crops with strip till is proving a winner for vegetable soils and crops.

The Soil Wealth ICP team has provided a second case study update from the project’s demonstration site in Cowra, New South Wales, which looks at the soil health benefits from using a cover crop, roller crimper and strip till, which underpinned an outstanding yield result.

This resource has been produced by the Hort Innovation-funded Soil Wealth and ICP project – jointly delivered by RM Consulting Group and Applied Horticultural Research.
