Summary

In general, cover crops have positive effects on soil struc¬ture, soil erosion, reducing nutrient leaching, weed sup¬pression and feeding the soil microbiome. Some species used as cover crops can also fix nutrients (nitrogen by legumes) or make nutrient more available (phosphorus by buckwheat). Used as green manures, they also help to sequester carbon.
This tool provides you with the most important thing to consider when using cover crops or green manures in your crop rotation, like choosing the right species mixtures to fit your goals, importance of timing and special benefits.
This tool is relevant for all practitioners utilizing, or considering using, cover crops in their crop rotation.


EPrint Type:Practice tool
What problem does the tool address?:Cover crops belong to different plant groups (families) so their impact as promotors or in¬hibitors for soilborne diseases and nematodes has to be specifically chosen.
What solution does the tool offer?:It is critical to consider your goals, and how different species or mixtures can help you achieve them.
