Description

Green Wing C2B

 

This mixture  is a fall cool-season cover crop mix designed for aerial seeding into standing corn, prior to a soybean crop the following year. C2B stands for Corn to Beans. Green Wing C2B will sequester nitrogen to prevent nitrogen loss during the winter and then reduce weed pressure the following spring (including tough-to-control weeds like glyphosate tolerant Marestail and pigweeds), as well as condition the soil with a blend of fibrous roots and deep taproots and provide a moisture conserving mulch.

 

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.
