Cover Those Bare Spots

By Randy Lopau, Certified Crop Advisor

The weather has been its usual, variable self this spring and early summer. If you’re one of the folks who have spots in your fields that have drowned out or been hailed out, consider putting in a cover crop in those areas. Even if you don’t need the feed, a cover crop will prevent weeds from making a deposit in the seed bank for the next growing season, and they’re great for the soil.

We have several good cover crop options to choose from, like Millborn Seed’s Classic Trio of turnip, radish and rape. If you have livestock, we can also seed that mix following wheat to generate some extra feed for your cattle.
