"Cover crops can be a wonderful addition to a farming operation, according to Randy McElroy, technology development representative with Monsanto. They do require some extra planning – starting with a different timetable than some farmers may be used to dealing with.
"'I encourage people to think in terms of an 18-month planning process instead of year-to-year,' he says.
"With cover crops comes a lot of new decisions, from the cover crop 'recipes' themselves and how to apply to how to terminate ahead of planting."
