New video: Summer cover crop options for vegetable growers
UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA EXTENSION - www.extension.umn.edu
There are many windows of opportunity to plant a cover crop on a vegetable farm. Two of those windows are in the summer: cover crops can be planted in late spring or early summer, terminated at midsummer, and followed with a late season vegetable crop. Or, they can be planted at midsummer after harvesting an early season vegetable crop. This new video, made in collaboration with the Grossman lab, answers questions like "What are some of the differences in management between a summer cover crop and a fall cover crop?", "Which species should I choose?", and "How will summer cover crops impact vegetable yields?"
