You’ve likely heard about planting green. That farmers like you are increasing yields by planting primary crops like corn and soybeans into cover crops, simultaneously improving soil health and pest management.
By using this method, research has shown that cover crop biomass can easily be doubled, helping to increase water filtration and reducing surface runoff and soil erosion.
Making the switch to planting into cover crops may be daunting, but the benefits outweigh the challenges, and the increased yields that will follow are well worth it.
Real no-tillers like you are increasing their yields by planting green and they spill their secrets in this exclusive guide. This FREE eGuide dives into the benefits of planting green, from farmers that have made the switch and reaped the rewards.

No-Till Planting Green Benefits
By now you probably agree when we say you can’t miss the benefits of planting green, found in this helpful guide. Benefits such as:
- Greater above – and belowground cover crop biomass. This helps to increase water infiltration and reduce surface runoff and soil erosion.
- Potentially fewer problems with slug and cutworm pest that move to the seedlings of the main crop when the cover crop is dead.
- Hairpinning problems should be eliminated or greatly reduced.
- The cover crop scavenges more nutrients that might otherwise be lost by leaching to groundwater.
- The cover will take up soil moisture and help the soil to dry out and warm up quicker in periods of excess soil moisture.
- The cover crops will harvest more solar energy and increase total soil carbon. This is important to increase the water holding capacity and nutrient pool of the soil.

No-till farmers have had fewer challenges since planting green.
You can too as you begin to bring your no-till farming to the next level with planting green. Here’s what these experienced no-tillers have to share:
- No-tiller Jim Hershey has found less risk planting soybeans into green cover than with corn, as soybeans are more tolerant of some standing cover.
- Jim Howard recommends planting your covers thin, as this will make it much easier to plant into.
- Matt Griggs advises other no-tillers to wait until conditions are favorable and the forecast remains favorable for 5 days after planting, as cover crops will magnify any weather problems, possibly leading to reduced emergence
These are just some of the takeaways you’ll find by downloading this free report and reviewing it with your cup of morning coffee.
Here’s a few more...
- Set your planter depths one notch deeper to ensure you have a good, consistent planting depth. Don’t worry about the ground crusting. As long as the seed germinates, it will emerge.
- The advice Mike Belan would give to other no-tillers wanting to plant green would be to go for it and integrate it slowly on a few acres first. Growing cover crops and specifically planting into them takes another set of management skills.
- Zeb Winslow recommends no-tillers trying planting green for the first time start small and experiment on small acreage.
And that’s just a taste of the insight you’ll glean from no-tillers that have been planting green over the past several years.
No doubt by now you see the value in no-till planting green, and making use of the incredible insights from no-tillers who’ve gone before you in this relatively new practice. You understand there are many benefits to planting green, but rather than going in blind, you have the opportunity to glean insight from experts and other no-till farmers who have made the switch to planting green.
