Jessica Awrey, a student at the University of Guelph, shares insights learned from research into cover crops in grain and vegetable crop rotations. During the research, covers such as cereal rye, radish, and oats were included and terminated with glyphosate. Awrey's research looked specifically at tomatoes grown as a vegetable crop as part of this rotation - with some interesting findings.
