About the event

The Cover Crop Breeding Network breeds fall-sown cover crops for traits like fall emergence, winter survival, spring vigor, high biomass, hard seed, and non-shattering pods.

Join us to walk the trial fields, talk about what we’re seeing (and not seeing), hear about past years’ results, and learn about CCB lines approaching commercialization. We'll tour:

Advanced line trials - Crimson clover, hairy vetch, winter pea, and winter canola

Planting date trials - Cereal rye and winter pea

Breeding nurseries - Cereal rye and winter pea (across the road & optional!)

Hosted by Ginny Moore, Asst. Professor, Plant Breeding & Genetics, Cornell, and Solveig Hanson, CCB Network Coordinator. 

We’ll meet rain or shine, and we’ll have beverages and snacks!
