<> Anna Golightly from the Madison County Board of Conservationists worked with Mrs. Purdy to start a cover crop experiment at the Madison County Outdoor Classroom with students Kacie Cowman and Abby Benshoof. The purpose of the experiment was to find the effects of cover crops on soil respiration and health. The group used the raised garden beds and planted 5 different combinations of species using radishes, oats, and grasses. Biweekly, the students gathered data on temperature and plant height, and with the help of Anna and Mrs. Purdy, created an analysis poster on the experiment to present to the Madison County Board of Conservationists. Overall, the results showed that cover crops help prevent severe soil temperature fluctuations and that plots with two complement species flourished best and improved respiration.
