Cover Crop Information

Rapeseed is a plant that has a deep fibrous root system that is good for nutrient capture and also makes it a good subsoiler. Rapeseed has been shown to have biological activity against plant parasitic nematodes as well as weeds. Rapeseed is a very versatile crop when it comes to planting due to the fact it can be planted in the spring for a summer cover crop, and may also be planted in the fall for a winter cover crop. Rape is much more cold tolerant than radish’s, in some cases they can last through the winter, making them a better choice if more cold tolerance is desired for the blend or for grazing.
