Cover Crops Reinvigorate & Protect Tired Soil

Cover crops, or 'green manures', are a group of plants who specialize in bringing fresh nutrition to undernourished soils. After harvesting heavy feeders like corn, your soil may not have much more to give to the next plant on your list! These bold protectors of bare soil can dig their roots in deep, helping to prevent wind and water erosion from stripping even more nutrients away from the land. When left to break down in-place, cover crops add indispensable organic matter to your soil, feeding the entire community of microbial life responsible for delivering nutrients to plant roots.
