Cover crops are all about soil health, one of the primary benefits of no-till. Though integrating cover crops into a no-till system is a fairly straightforward process, it’s important to do your homework before beginning. Cover crops are comprised of a variety of different species with specific effects on soil health. Ask the following questions when selecting cover crop species for your operation:
- What are my field soil types and conditions?
- What do I want my cover crops to accomplish?
- What rotational crops will I produce in my no-till cover crop system?
- How will I manage my cover crops at key times (planting, termination, etc.)?
