[Podcast] Using Short-Season Cash Crops to Plant Cover Crops Earlier

One of the easiest strategies to getting cover crops seeded earlier in fields — and getting more growth, better erosion control, more nitrogen scavenging and the like — is utilizing shorter-season corn hybrids. Improved genetics available today can provide growers more options without sacrificing too much yield. (Courtesy of&nbsp;<a href="http://www.covercropinnovators.com/" target="_blank">Cover Crop Innovators</a>)
