Unfortunately there are some years when fields just don't get planted to a cash crop. But this can open up an opportunity to plant a wide range of species of cover crops to make soils more productive in the future, says Steve Groff.
The Holtwood, Pa., no-tiller and Cover Crop Coach will talk about whether growers will be able to take a nutrient credit from planting covers this way, and go over an important verification checklist that involves government and insurance regulations, herbicides and fertility goals. He’ll also talked about appropriate planting timeframes, and why a cover-crop mix is important to use in waterlogged fields to address what he calls the “mycorrhizal consideration.”
