If your agronomic goals for the year have to do with improving soil health, some of the items on your to-do list might include: increasing nutrients, sequestering nitrogen, reversing the effects of erosion, improving water infiltration, and controlling weeds. Is your land thirsty for these changes? We know just how to reach these soil health goals: with cover crop mixes.
By planting cover crops or a mix of them typically outside of the regular growing season, your fields will reap the reward of healthy soil ready to nurture healthy roots. Cover crop mixes provide for biodiversity in the soil profile, helping to awaken the soil and stimulate soil biology later into the fall and earlier in the spring.
Not only do cover crop mixes increase soil health by sequestering necessary nutrients; they also minimize risks that could have an adverse effect on your primary crops. For example, without cover crops, your fields are more at risk of erosion, soil compaction, and run-off. Don’t risk these damaging agents; instead, learn more about cover crops and take advantage of their benefits.
