Green Manures & Cover Crops
Green manures are crops grown to improve soil during times when there would be no other plants in the ground. They are typically dug back into the soil before the following crop to allow it to benefit from the nutrients released. A wide range of plant species can be used with different ones providing different benefits such as: providing nutrients and organic matter for following crops, breaking up heavy soil and creating habitat for insects.
Sowing rates for all seeds/mixtures are for application by seeder. Broadcast distribution of seeds requires ~25% more seed.
