  • Radishes improve the rooting depth of the following crop
  • Oats and barley provide a moisture conserving mulch
  • Hybrid brassica improves snowcatch over the winter
  • Mixture can be grazed in late fall
  • All components should winterkill to leave the ground open for spring planting

 

Benefits of Cover Crops

  • Nitrogen Fixing: To generate nitrogen credits beneficial for the next primary crop.
  • Nutrient Scavenging: To consume and temporarily sequester (tie-up) nitrogen or to reclaim unreachable reservoirs of nutrients.
  • Mulching and Organic Matter: To improve soil health (moisture retention and water holding capacity) as well as to reduce soil erosion.
  • Soil conditioning: To reduce soil compaction, fracture hard-pan, and generally improve soil structure.
  • Soil Pest Management: To suppress nematodes and disrupt pest cycles.
  • Upland Birds: Creates brood rearing cover when planted in the spring through late summer.
