Southern SARE, in conjunction with the Center for Environmental Farming Systems, held a Southern Cover Crop Conference in the summer of 2016. The event brought together researchers, Extension personnel, farmers, and ag industry specialists to discuss and learn about cover crop research, results and education across the South. Part of the event included field demonstrations of cover crop technologies and conservation practices. These series of videos highlight some of those demonstrations that took place.

SSARE-funded research from University of Puerto Rico on sustainable methods of weed control in organic coffee fields. Such methods include using cover crops as ground cover, mechanical methods, and organic herbicides. Results showed that once established, cover crops outperformed all other methods for controlling weeds.
These three to four minute videos, developed by the Alabama Integrated Pest Management vegetable program, provide viewers with basic information about current research-based IPM recommendations on trap cropping.
