Cover Crop Time

If you have not planned your cover crop strategy for the fall, now is the time to think about what you want to do and get set up to do it.  This Prairie Farmer article gives some ideas.

The easiest to do is cereal rye after corn in fields where you are going to soybeans.  Corn planted in to cereal rye is not for beginners, although I know some people who are doing it.

In thinking about cover crops, set your goals in order to decide what ti plant.  Midwest Cover Crops Tool can help in decision making.

Cover crops can help with weed control, improve tilth, build organic matter, and help implement No-Till.
