Consider Cover Crops on Prevented Plant Ground

PP Land

With prevented planting (PP) more common throughout North Dakota this year, using cover crops to prepare the land for next year is a desirable option.  Cover crops can be single plant species or a mixture of several species – it depends on your goals.  The obvious reason for using cover crops in PP situations is to use up excess water, but other reasons and benefits of cover crop use should be noted.
