Whether you are farming conventionally, organically, or aiming for a no-till system, soils should have a living crop growing on each field for as many months of the year as possible. Many of our forage crops also act as cover crops. In addition to selling forages that can double as cover crops, King’s AgriSeeds has developed a variety of mixtures that will help improve your soil’s health. Species blends are far more beneficial in improving the life of your soil than a monoculture. Cover crops have huge potential to improve your farm’s long term productivity and profitability. Consult with our agronomists to choose the appropriate cover crop for your farm.
For best root nodulation and nitrogen fixation, inoculate untreated legume seed and seed mixtures containing legumes with the appropriate inoculant, as indicated. Although some legumes tolerate more acidic soils after they get established, most legumes need a pH close to neutral for nodulation.
