Sustainable Agriculture: Cover Cropping
Webster, Megan
Geography Teacher, v15 n1 p21-22 2018
Sustainable agriculture practices are increasingly being used by farmers to maintain soil quality, increase biodiversity, and promote production of food that is environmentally safe. There are several types of sustainable agriculture practices such as organic farming, crop rotation, and aquaculture. This lesson plan focuses on the sustainable agriculture practice that is called "cover cropping." In this 30-40 minute lesson plan, high school students view a short video and complete a guided reading assignment to understand the sustainable agriculture practice of cover crops. A lesson worksheet is included.
