BULLOCK TILLAGE COVER CROPS TRIAL

Four on-farm trial plots of cover crops were direct drilled this spring with the intentions of considering their effects on blackgrass/weed control, soil structure, organic matter, reduction in soil erosion and nutrient loss.


The previous crop was winter wheat and the field had been fallowed over winter.


The Drilling date was May 23rd and the four plots are Black oats, Oil Radish, Mustard/Clover mix and a "home made" mixture of oats, beans and oil radish.
