My advice on cover crops would be:
- Start small
- Plant cover crops on your worst soils
- Use No-till or very reduced tillage
- Read as much as you can
- Set a baseline on your own farm.
- Start with a Soil Health Test
- Expect to make mistakes
Soil Consulting and Crop Consulting in Illinois. You may call it soil testing, soil sampling, or soil health management, but it is more than that. These are my daily or weekly travels in soil and crop consulting and my observations in the agricultural world.
