Summary:
My major is agroecology and sustainable cropping system. I am studying for a low input crop production in cold regions that has the limitation of the growing period. Cover crops are essential crops for sustainable cropping systems. Cover crops are useful tools for the improvement of the availability of soil nutrients and weed control.
