Legume cover crops provide rotational diversity resulting in reduced erosion and improved soil health, nitrogen availability, weed control, and moisture retention. Legume covers have also been shown to successfully suppress weeds due to their physical and/or chemical properties. We utilised a unique in vitro soil bioassay (Weston and Mueller1989) to further evaluate the suppressive potential of selected legume residues, performed in combination with replicated field studies.
