Activities and research

Cover crop case studies

  • JenEhr Family Farm- This case study presents the experience of a Wisconsin vegetable grower who has been growing cover crops for more than ten years. He describes his philosophy of cover crop use and offers his perspectives on what cover crop strategies have and have not worked on his farm, what benefits he receives from growing cover crops and how he manages these crops. Farmers and researchers can use this information as a starting point to explore how they might develop cover crop systems to fit their situations and meet their own goals.
  • Gary Sommers Farm- This case study shares the experience of one Wisconsin farmer who has been growing cover crops on his cash grain farm for twenty years. He presents his philosophy of cover crop use, explains what cover crop management practices have and have not worked on his farm, and describes what benefits he sees from growing cover crops. Farmers and researchers can use this information as a starting point to explore how they might develop cover crop systems to meet their own goals.
