Cover crop diversity: implications for soil carbon cycling

Agricultural soil carbon stores have been significantly depleted due to poor agricultural management practices, yet agriculture has great potential to restore soil carbon. There are few viable management techniques, including cover crops, that can significantly increase soil carbon. Our research examines how increasing cover crop diversity impacts soil carbon and soil microbial communities, which are intrinsic to processes responsible for soil carbon sequestration.
