My research focuses on using volunteer wheat interseeded with broadleaf cover crops (forage collards and peas) for weed suppression and soil health improvement in sugar beet. Specifically, my research project is evaluating: 1) biomass production and weed suppression from volunteer winter wheat when utilized as a cover crop; 2) soil health benefits and changes in disease pressure when utilizing volunteer wheat as a cover crop; and 3) cost savings in cover crop establishment and reduction in herbicide use when volunteer winter wheat is used as a cover crop.
