“Just imagine having 250 pounds of nitrogen, 23 pounds of phosphorus, and extra 230 pounds of potash that I didn’t have to buy. It was there. And these plants help make it available to the next year’s plants.” – Dave Brandt
Veteran no-tiller Dave Brandt of Carroll, Ohio, has learned first-hand about the many benefits of using cover crops, one of the most important being the improved nutrient cycling that can lead to input savings and a healthier bottom line.
In today’s podcast, Dave shares some of his many experiences with cover crops, explaining the nutrient potential of an array of different species, where and when those nutrients can be found, how different crops can be used to bring up subsoil nutrients, how he has seen them boost both yields and profits, and more.
