Webinar: How to use cover crops

Cover crops offer the opportunity to improve moisture storage on cropping soils when used in the right situation with good management.

In this webinar, you’ll hear from North West Local Land Service's Cropping Officer Bill Manning and Research Agronomist with the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, Andrew Erbacher who has completed research in the cover crop space. Andrew will explain how to use cover crops, touching on the following topics:

• when can a cover improve moisture storage and improve yield?
• use of cover crops within different crop rotations
• when should a cover crop be terminated?
• how much extra moisture can be gained from a cover crop?
• how much moisture can be lost from a cover crop if it doesn't work?
• which species should be used for a cover crop?
