Presenter – Chris Penfold (The University of Adelaide)

Description – The species chosen for cover cropping are generally those that are familiar to the grower and are known to perform well in a particular environment, and for which seed can be cheaply and readily obtained. In the past, this has limited the choice to the standard crops grown in arable agriculture. The potential for substitution of the arable cover crop species with species that have been specifically selected for their performance as cover crops or natives has been increasingly recognised. This presentation will provide a review of recent research on cover crop performance and tools that can be used to match cover crops to specific situations.
