Heidi Reed in corn

Lead researcher Heidi Reed, a doctoral degree student in agronomy when the research was conducted, who is now an educator with Penn State Extension, inspects a corn field that was part of the study. Corn on the left side of the photo was planted green; the right side was a "control" treatment, with the cover crop killed 14 days prior to corn planting.
