How is climate change affecting our soils? Often, practices like reducing tillage and cover cropping are recommended to improve soil health and resilience to drought and flood—practices that can also affect weed management. UMass Extension Soil Health specialist will discuss general impacts of climate change on soil health and highlight current research on updating recommendations for planting timing and overwintering survival of cover crop species in MA. Maria Gannett, UMass Extension Weeds Specialist, will relate these strategies to how they can impact weed management.
