Cover crops improve the sustainability and quality of both natural system and agro ecosystem. In GumaraMaksegnit watershed which is located in Lake Tana basin, farmers usually use fallow during the rainy season for the preceding chickpea production system. The fallowing period can lead to soil erosion and nutrient losses.
