Safe Soil

A research center in Albany looks into new ways to protect the soil.

The Hundley-Whaley Research Center recently began a multi-year cover crop study.

The M-U College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources will conduct research.

The research will help solve questions about how cover crops effect soil in corn and soybean fields.

Kyle Spradley is a Senior Information Specialist with the University of Missouri's College of Agriculture.

He says by planting cover crops like Rye grass and turnips there are benefits.
