Knowing the winter hardiness rating of any given cover crop species is a very important aspect of successful management. But there’s more to determining winter hardiness and selecting the right variety for your operation that than just knowing plant zones or having the average low temperature at hand for your location, says Steve Groff.
In this podcast the Holtwood, Pa., grower and Cover Crop Coach will discuss many factors that affect winter hardiness ratings, including planting date, temperatures, snow cover, wind chill, freeze-thaw cycles and more. And he’ll share some important questions to ask about winter hardiness when purchasing seed for your farm.
