COVER CROPS

 

Cover Crops

Cover Crops are grasses, legumes or forbes planted to provide seasonal soil cover on cropland when the soil would otherwise be bare.

Benefits:

  • Increases yields in future crop years

  • Breaks up soil compaction

  • Provides outstanding weed control

  • Reduces nitrogen costs

  • Adds organic matter, aerates and loosens soils

  • Makes cropland more productive due to diversification.
