Long-Term Vegetable Crop Rotation Study


To evaluate effects of several winter cover crop systems, including fall-seeded and overseeded triticale, fall-seeded triticale plus winter pea, and overseeded red clover on yield and quality of sweet corn at three rates of N. The cover crops follow broccoli fertilized with three rates of N.

To evaluate the effect of these cover crops and the N applied to sweet corn on the amount of nitrate leached below the root zone.

To evaluate the effect of these cropping systems on the potential for herbicide degredation in the soil profile.
