Cover crop mixes are simply the best way cover crops should be implemented into your crop rotation. Cover crop mixes allows unlimited benefits in soil health and the biology around them. The interaction between living plants of different varieties when planted together actually improve the growth and healthiness far beyond what could be mono cropped. You get a more balanced release of nutrients, more organic matter, while improving the biology of the soil and the success of subsequent plants.
Longevity. If you want a cover crop that lasts for a longer duration, yet it still considered an annual for easy termination, a cover crop mix is what you want. These diverse mix of plants will last longer than any mono crop of one specie of cover.
Drought tolerance and success of individual species are dramatically improved when used in a mix.
Using a diverse mix lowers the cost per acre and minimizes the risk of a crop failure. If you plant 10 different cover crops in a mix, many will do well. If you mono crop each of those plants, you potentially risk wasting time and resources from from a crop failure.
This mix we sell is an opportunity of what to expect from using a mix. It will give you a chance to see the interaction of mixing cover crops without having to buy 10lbs of seed just to get one pound of mix. We put multiple species in the mix. This mix we offer will not always be the same but it will always have multiple species for the small buyer to try without having to buy each of those species and mix them on their own. If you have a question on what’s inside this mix we stock right now, email me.
Larger buyers can custom mix whatever we have in stock. If we are out of inventory just “ask” we can make more on the spot!
