Producing Grazeable Cover Crops During Summer Fallow in Winter Wheat

September 2020

The objective of this Fact Sheet is to discuss the potential of grazing summer cover crops and their effects on the fol-lowing winter wheat crop. All discussion is based on findings obtained from soil and weather conditions in Oklahoma and is focused on finding a middle ground between profitability and conservation. All findings and discussion mentioned in this Fact Sheet is a summary of Horn et al. (2020), which is an open-access article published in the Agronomy Journal.
