Cover Crops in Orchards case study

Do you want to learn more about the ins and outs of planting and managing cover crops from growers with cover crop experience? Check out our Cover Crops in Orchards case study! CAFF’s Ecological Farming team collaborated with nut growers in California’s Central Valley as part of a Healthy Soils Demonstration project from 2019-2022. As part of on-farm research paired with grower observations, we share takeaways on the impacts of cover cropping on soil metrics like total carbon, nitrogen, soil microbial biomass, and more. Growers share benefits they’ve observed, as well as challenges and lessons learned. See below for more or download here.
