The period after wheat harvest in many states provides a golden opportunity for growers to add some diverse cover crop mixes in their fields that provide numerous benefits.
But which species are best suited for this planting window and what’s the best way to establish them?
Holtwood, Pa., grower and Cover Crop Coach Steve Groff will share some tips on seeding practices and a detailed checklist on other questions farmers should ask, including how to work summer covers in with their farm’s established fertilization program.
He’ll also cover how to handle volunteer wheat and different species to consider based on farmers’ goals of soil health, nutrient sequestration or grazing and forage.
