Integrating Balansa Clover into Midwest Rotations

We’ll take a deeper look into how to make balansa clover work in our traditional corn, soybean, and wheat rotations.  Based on what’s working with growers today, we’ll highlight planting dates/establishment, nutrient and biomass considerations, and spring termination.  The presentation will compare balansa clover to other cover crop legumes and evaluate how producers ultimately leverage these species on their farm.
