Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) is at the forefront of supporting the innovative producers, educators, and researchers who are making cover crops one of the most indispensable cost-saving tools in the soil-health toolbox. SARE supported research at Oregon State University (OSU) that developed a calculator for estimating the cost and nitrogen (N) contribution of cover crops, compost, and organic and synthetic fertilizers. SARE grantees all over the country are exploring cover crops' dynamic and vital role in soil and fertility management. For more information, and to find the practical tools and guides arising from such projects, visit SARE's Cover Crops Topic Room.
