Cover Crops Cover crops benefit the soil by improving soil tilth, improving water filtration, reducing erosion, improving fertility, increasing organic matter, and suppressing weeds. Also beneficial organisms and insects may be encouraged by planting cover crops.
A class on soil quality with an emphasis on cover crops was offered to our participants. A mixture of buckwheat, crimson clover, and a fall crop was distributed to our participants to be used as a cover crop.
