Description

Green Wing B2C

 

This mixture is designed for aerial seeding into standing soybeans at leaf yellowing, prior to a corn crop the following year. Green Wing B2C works best with sprinkler irrigation or timely rainfall.

 

  • Comprised of species with a low seeding rate
  • Small seeds that germinate from the soil surface
  • Does not produce protruding roots (like radish) that may interfere with soybean harvest if harvest is delayed
  • Mixture is composed of legumes and brassicas to produce and then rapidly release nitrogen to a following corn crop

 

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.
