Never too early to think cover crops

A cover crop specialist says it’s best for farmers to make cover crop planting decisions early in the growing season.

“If you have been contemplating cover crops, it’s never too early to start thinking about it, start reaching, you can use our tools to dive deeper into cover crops.”

Anne Morrow with the Midwest Cover Crop Council tells Brownfield their cover crop selector tool can help farmers select cover crops that work best in specific growing conditions.  “That’s really helping with seeding dates, seeding windows, and what species would work for you based on your goals, soil type and weather patterns.”

She says cover crops are known to keep nutrients in the field, prevent erosion and improve water infiltration.

Morrow spoke with Brownfield during the recent Conservation Tillage and Technology Conference in Ohio.
