What’s Next in the Project?

Much research has been done to support biodiversity on the farm, farmscaping, beneficial insects, cover cropping, and a host of other agro-ecology practices.

However, there is still very little research in how to maximize these practices efficiently and effectively.

This project will proceed to address the following questions:

  • Which species mix and rates are most effective?
  • What type of beneficial insectary benefits can be measured?
  • Do the plots benefit from the addition of nutrient fertilizers?
  • Can this practice be adopted as a Best Management Practice with the Soil and Water Districts of NC?
