No-tillers love the long roots of annual ryegrass because they help scavenge nutrients that are otherwise lost, help break up compacted soils and provide channels for the following year’s grain crop to follow. But there are some challenges in raising this cover crop that no-tillers need to overcome to make it a staple of their rotation.
Jamie Scott has learned to make annual ryegrass a viable option, even in an area that some no-tillers might think is too “northern” for the valuable cover crop. The Pierceton, Ind., no-tiller, who farms with his father, Jim, will share the management techniques they’ve successfully employed from start to finish, including establishing stands in standing no-tilled corn and soybeans with aerial applications and their tricks to controlling annual ryegrass in the spring.
