This study evaluated the impacts of a variety of different cover crop mixtures on soil properties and soybean growth/yield in conventional cropping systems. The cover cropped plots had significantly lower soil nitrate than the control plots with no cover crops, but there was no other significant impact on soils. Additionally, soybean yields were not significantly different in the cover crop and control plots.
