Better Yields, Improved Soil
Increased yields and higher economic returns on future crops are the ultimate goals for your acres. Building your soil by planting Cover Crops and using diverse crop rotations along with grazing programs are the best way to achieve these goals and improve your soil’s health. Our mixes use a diverse group of plant species and types, all occupying different places in the canopy and soil profile, working synergistically to build soil structure, organic matter and the most rapid improvement in the land’s ability to support future crops and generations of producers.
The Right Mix
Our mixs design for multiple species and diversity includes the four key plant species.
When appropriate use all four:
- Warm-season grass plants
- Cool-season grass plants
- Warm-season broadleaves
- Cool-season broadleaves
Our mixes include a mix of grass plants, brassicas and legumes that are known for establishing themselves quickly. We balance the species in our mixes to maximize their synergy and create the best solution to specific cover cropping goals. Our mix designs follow the seasons in which you choose to seed the cover crop. We start wiht cool-season species for the early spring planting dates of March through April. Warm season species are the best choice for planting in May through August. Cool-season species with winter annuals are used from mid-August through October.
