To maximize benefit to the reader, the experimental process is outlined, including mistakes and lessons learned. In this study, spring seeding of cover crops in place of fallowing the ground resulted in excessive loss of soil moisture. This, in turn, raised the risk of crop germination failure in the subsequent fall. Growing companion crops together with a cash crop shows potential for attaining the growers’ desired goal. However, not all obstacles have been identified, and more research should be conducted to optimize recommendations.
