RegenPGC - Perennial Groundcover Approaches to Pressing Conservation Challenges

Morrill Professor Raj Raman, in Iowa State University's Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Department, and collaborators at The Land Institute and Corteva, discuss the RegenPGC vision for Midwest cropping systems. Early research -- including by professors Ken Moore, agronomy, and Shuizhang Fei, horticulture -- to investigate the potential of perennial groundcovers for Midwest cropping systems received initial "seed" funding from the Iowa Nutrient Research Center.
