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.

Combining cover crops with strip-till is proving a winner for vegetable soils and crops. In the Cowra Case Study Part I, we detailed cucumber crop benefits. 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.
