What are cover crops for? Soil functions best when it is covered, protected from overexposure to the environment by something growing on its surface. The first and most basic function of a cover crop is to reduce erosion, or the wholesale loss of soil to wind and runoff. Having cover crops in the soil also helps to collect solar energy, turning it into sugars and recycling soil nutrients for use by the next cash crop.
How can you fit cover crops into your rotation? The key element to remember is that the growing season is much longer than the span between last frost in the spring and first frost in the fall. Many tools are now avaiable to plant cover crops into cash crops before, during or after harvest. Use the resources available and your knowledge of what works on your land. Then, don't be afraid to seed outside the box! Give us a call, we'd love to visit with you about your ideas.
