  • Protect your biggest investment your soil. Some bare soils can reach 140 degrees F on hot summer days. This is hot enough to kill vital soil organisms and stress  the crop from both heat and excessive soil moisture evaporation. The residue of a cover crop can protect the soil while cash crops are getting established.
  • Reduce soil compaction and improve your soil structure. 
  • Soak up summer rains.
  • Save time and money on fertilizers.
