Summer cover cropping for weed management

In 2019 and 2020, the University of New England worked with the team from the Greater Sydney Local Land Services (GS LLS) Demonstration Farm in the Richmond Lowlands, New South Wales, on a two-season trial to explore the effects of different cover crops in suppressing weeds in vegetable production.

In this two part video series, Mario Muscat and Peter Conasch from the GS LLS Demonstration Farm discuss the positives and negatives of the various cover crop treatments from the weed and farm management perspective, and the role of the Demonstration Farm in extending novel management practices to vegetable growers.

The University of New England acknowledges Peter Conasch, Mario Muscat and Nikki McGrath from GS LLS for their support in producing this video, and sharing their story.
