A suite of agronomic management projects will be deployed across the region to position pennycress in the predominate corn and soybean rotation and in a range of high-valued rotational crops. We will:
- Develop regionally-based agronomic management practices for establishing pennycress in grain corn systems.
- Quantify soybean and pennycress yield trade-offs across soybean maturity group (MG) and cropping systems.
- Establish weed and pest best management strategies that support pennycress integration in corn and soybean production systems.
