Cover crops are usually nitrogen fixing plants, which have a range of beneficial effects including smothering weeds, reducing pests and improving soil properties, as well as providing food, livestock feed, fuel and soil cover. The Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) has launched a research network on the Internet on cover crops. In CcropNet some 60 researchers and 30 research websites across West Africa are sharing their research work and findings (including a cover crop photo gallery) and are helping to refine and improve the role of cover crops in sustainable agriculture.
