Green Manure / Cover Crop - 5 Species
Cover crops are grown to protect and/or enrich the soil. When turned into the soil, a cover crop may also be called a green manure. Cover cropping is an important part of a vegetable crop rotation plan in order to biologically maintain soil health and manage insect, weed, and disease pressure. Cover crops offer many benefits, but not all at once, nor from one species. You may want to protect the soil from intense erosion, alleviate compaction, suppress weeds, build organic matter, add Nitrogen or mop-up available nutrients after the growing season.
