Soil sampling in the snow

That's right, snow on November 25th at the NIARC.

Less than ideal conditions to collect soil samples from the Cover Crop study. The five year study includes spring and fall soil samples at 0-30, 30-60, 60-90 centimeters. Our goal is to quantify any nutrient recycling that results from growing cover crops. Thanks to Greg Steckel and Race Higgins who bundled up and assisted with today's sampling.

December will soon be upon us, join us at the upcoming University of Illinois programs in Northern Illinois.

Mark your calendars!
