The north eastern section of the ALC is reserved for agronomic crops - corn (maize), soybean and sunflower, sun hemp and field pea green manure crops and oat, rye and tillage radish cover crops. Some crops are planted or thinned to different densities and all are used in two classes. The first is Sustainable Soil and Crop Management Stocksch 350 taught by Dr. Hashemi, and the second is Physiology of Crop Yield Stocksch 520 taught by Dr. Herbert. The image above shows oat (winter killed) and rye cover crops planted on different weeks as part of labs for the above classes.
