CPA – Planting Commodity Crops into Green Cover Crops

Our rainy wet weather conditions have certainly caused a lot of delays in field operations this spring.  One of these challenges we face in a spring like this one is the process of getting crops terminated and summer annual crops like corn and soybean planted in fields where cover crops have grown somewhat large.  In anticipation of a late wet spring, Purdue crop production and pest management specialists met with NRCS personnel about a month ago to discuss production strategies for fields with cover crops. The result of this discussion and our management recommendations are summarized in IB 180-19-02 Planting Green that NRCS is distributing to their clientele. There are also a few articles on Bob Nielsen’s Chat and Chew webpage regarding cover crop management in a late wet spring as well.
