Feasibility of Using Cover Crops to Enhance Soil Organic Matter and Crop Yield in New Mexico

This study evaluates the potential of using cover crop to enhance yield and farm profitability using experimental data from Clovis Agricultural Research Center, New Mexico. The analysis includes seven different combinations of cover crops and one fallow treatment as a control. The Monte Carlo simulations results show that a cover crop treatment that includes a mixture of six crops (6XM) yields highest net return, while the treatment that uses only canola provides a least risky option.
