”While soil health may be harder to quantify than benefits like biomass production or input savings, there are ways of measuring how cover crops are making a difference in your soil... Reduced ErosionProtecting soil from wind and water erosion is a common reason growers begin using cover crops. The easiest way to monitor this benefit is simply by looking for signs that less erosion is occuring... If you’re looking for more precise measurements of your soil compaction, you’ll want to use a penetrometer, which measures the soil’s compaction in pounds per square inch (psi)...

One way to help manage these high rainfall events is to improve soil water infiltration — the faster it can enter the soil, the less likely it will pond or run off the farm, taking valuable soil and nutrients with it. But what are the best practices for increasing water infiltration rates?University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) assistant professor of agronomy and horticulture Andrea Basche set out to find just that... Top Practices: Perennials & Cover CropsBasche and DeLonge’s research discovered the practice that improved water infiltration rates the most was having perennial crops, such as grasses or trees, incorporated into the cropland... ”The second most influential practice was cover crops, which the meta-analysis found improved soil water infiltration by an average 35%... Basche and DeLonge also noted there was evidence that cover crops had a greater impact on water infiltration rates in coarsely textured soils with higher sand content and less clay...

Looking at planting triticale with hairy vetch and cow peas for a cover crop next year for a cash crop or corn to be planted late May 2021 using a roller crimper to terminate the cover crop before plant. It’s October 18th, I won’t be able to plant until the 22nd. Night time temps have fluctuated from mid 30s to high 20s no consistency yet. Some nights stay closer to 40. Highs are in the 70s and 80s. Am I too late for any of my covers? Any suggestions on planting rates? Will triticale terminate properly if I follow the method used for Rye, waiting until the entire field is dropping pollen?
