from Cover Crops Canada
"Cover crops in Canada and the northern U.S. Plains, mainly vetches, radishes and peas, are mostly used for soil remediation or extending the livestock grazing season. However, they serve a different purpose in the U.S. Midwest, where many producers are seeding 'catch crops' to minimize nitrogen and phosphorus loss."
"Nutrient leaching is not normally a concern during a prairie winter, but there are numerous uses for cover crops in Western Canada. Lawley said rehabilitating wet areas in a field is a good place to start."
