Soil Management, Soil Health, and Cover Crops
Soil management can include research on tillage practices, cover crops, residue management (including residue removal), compaction, soil amendments, composting, and onsite wastewater systems.
Kansas State is proud to be an active member of the Midwest Cover Crops Council, and the Cover Crop Decision Tool is an excellent place to get started when choosing a cover crop that is the right fit for your system.
The Kansas Agricultural Watershed (KAW) Field Laboratory is an outdoor lab designed for the development of sustainable agricultural systems and evaluation of their effects on water quality. The goal is to provide producers with flexible management options that maximize profitability while protecting soil and water resources. For a tour of this facility, please contact one of the researchers listed on the KAW website, or Dr. DeAnn Presley, email@example.com Visitors are always welcome.
