In reply I can only suggest that the more cool tolerant corns used in no
till may be of use.  I know of several very cool tolerant varieties
from the mountains, but I doubt that they would work into common machine
systems very well.  Questions:  how much is production dropping with the
living mulch?  Is the savings in spray and fertilizer making up for any of
it?  Is the current production, though lower, financially feasible at all?
