Prevented planting? Try cover crops

07/07/2011 - 07/18/2011

If flooding kept you out of the field this spring and you weren't able to plant, don't just leave that land bare all year, says one agronomy specialist.

 

If you're filing a Prevented Planting crop insurance claim on some of your acres this year, you'll presumably be unable to get into the field to get anything sown too soon. But, that doesn't mean you can just leave those acres untended. One good strategy, says Purdue University agronomist Eileen Kladivko, is to plant a cover crop. The benefits are many, she says.
