Cowra cover crop and strip till a winning combination for soil health

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

In Part II we dig a bit deeper to look at the soil health benefits from cover crop + roller crimper + strip till which underpinned the outstanding yield result.
