Cover crops are an especially attractive option at this time because the federal government has relaxed some management rules and deadlines to give growers more options. Even corn and soybeans are a possibility in unplanted fields as a cover (see article below).

Just a reminder — if you’re using crop insurance or aren’t sure how a payment program applies to your farm operation, make sure to check with your local Farm Service Agency (FSA) office, insurance agent or crop advisor before making any management decisions.
