Title: After Wheat, Going to Corn or Soybean: Use an Oat-Radish Mix
Author: Grigg, Jordan; Ogilvie, Cameron; Van Eerd, Laura; Verhallen, Anne
Department: School of Environmental Sciences
Abstract: This recipe provides an introductory approach to integrating a cover crop mix of oats and radish after wheat harvest going to corn or soybean the next year. Since both oat and radish can be sown after wheat harvest and usually winter-kill, it is a low-risk mix that will help control tough perennial weeds, minimize erosion, build soil structure, reduce compaction, and add some extra diversity to your rotation.
Description: This publication is intended to provide a starting point for farmers who are new to growing cover crops. With experience, farmers may fine-tune the use of cover crops for their systems.
