Here’s What Cover Crops You Should Plant This Spring

Katrina Huffstutler of The Noble Research Institute writes about what cover crops to plant this spring.

The C3 Take
  • Cover crops are important to promoting biodiversity and boosting soil health.
  • Knowing what cover crops to plant will depend on your goals for your land.
  • Sorghum-sudangrass, for instance, is good if the goal is to increase carbon in the soil, while chicory will deal with soil compaction.

“Sorghum species are drought- and heat-tolerant, and they are excellent nutrient scavengers. Flax adapts to a wide range of environments and is tolerant of temperatures slightly below freezing. Soybeans seem more prone to attack by insect pests and are not as drought-tolerant as other warm-season legumes.”
