Fall Cover Crop Planning
Aug 02, 2022
With fall right around the corner, it is time to start planning for cover crop seedings, especially on any fields that you plan on chopping early. We have a lot of options to think about in a cover crop seeding, from seed to plant, how to plant the seed, and what our goal of the cover crop is on your farm. At SFG we have multiple options for seed frequently used for cover crops. Some options include:
- Winter Rye
- Winter Wheat
- Turnips, Radishes, and Brassicas
- Mixtures of any of the above
Method of seeding must also be considered when planning to seed cover crops. We can spread cover crops with an airplane with this year’s crops still growing in the field, get you the seed to drill after this year’s crop is harvested, or mix seed with fertilizer and spread after harvest.
If you are considering cover crops talk to your local SFG Agronomist about options that will work on your farm for this falls cover crop seeding needs.
