Sustainable Cropping Systems Symposium
Does “the more the merrier” apply to cover crops? What strategies work well for reducing tillage in organic grain systems? How does shrub willow perform as a biofuel crop? These are just some of the questions addressed during the fifth annual Sustainable Agriculture Cropping Systems Symposium, an event designed to provide scientists from several sustainable cropping systems research projects an opportunity to share their findings and plan collaborative activities.
For the fourth consecutive year, members of the Penn State community involved in sustainable cropping systems research and extension gathered to share research findings and exchange best practices for experimentation and engagement with the farming community in Pennsylvania and beyond. The 2014 Sustainable Agriculture Cropping Systems Symposium took place on March 21 on Penn State’s University Park campus.
