Production of cover crops as feedstock for composting has a variety of benefits and applications. While ample information is available on a variety of compost production and use topics, little research is available on growing and using cover crop residue as a composting feedstock. This Extension publication provides preliminary data on growing and using buckwheat and sudangrass as feedstock, including crop productivity, feedstock quality, composting characteristics, and end-use characteristics of finished compost produced from graduated mixtures of cover crop residue and wood shavings. This information is intended for farmers, researchers, technical service providers, and others interested in the utilization of cover crop residue as composting feedstock.
