University of Arkansas Extension Cotton Project

The objective of this study is to evaluate the impact of cover crops on irrigation water use efficiency, profitability, and sustainability. The University of Arkansas Cotton Research Verification/ Sustainability program conducted research along with Discovery Farms in Arkansas. Each field was composed of two irrigation sets allowing for evaluation of farmer standard practices, till/ no-cover to that of a modified production system no-till/cover. All fields were monitored for inputs and entered into the Fieldprint Calculator and used to calculate expenses.
