Fine Tuning Cover Crops
Yesterday I attended a program on cover crops in Litchfield. Andy Shireman, a Scott County Farmer discussed his experience. He said that his favorite cover crops are Annual Ryegrass in ground going to corn, and cereal rye in ground going to soybeans. He uses turnips and radishes in grazing. He also likes radishes on his high clay bottomland soils. He says his cover crops help with weed control and soil tilth.
