Flowering and regrowth of hairy vetch cultivars used for pollinator forage and reduced tillage Koebel, Alisa; Furey, George; Riseman, Andrew


This study examines hairy vetch cultivars’ potential to provide services for pollinators and in the context of winter cover crop reduced till operations by measuring two functional traits: flowering time and regrowth. This report first describes the characteristics of hairy vetch, then goes on to locate the potential role of cover crops in pollination and reduced-tillage organic systems.
