Defining the Optimal Rice/Soybean Rotation Interval
About this research project
MoSoy Investment = $26,000
Currently there are areas in the bootheel region where continuous rice has been grown for several decades. While rice will continue to be a key crop for the region, crop rotation must be introduced to be sustainable in the long-term. The goal of the proposed project is to identify the short- and long-term effects of different rice and soybean rotation intervals on yield, quality, pest pressure and nutrient availability.
