Thoughts from CTTC: When to terminate cover crops?

Experts of all sorts were found at the Conservation Tillage and Technology Conference this past week at the McIntosh Center on the campus of Ohio Northern University in Ada.

Not only is it a great event each year to learn about the latest in farming and conservation, but also a good place to ask questions about practices already in action.

One of those common questions we’ve found recently is the search for the best time to terminate cover crops come planting season. With some saying they prefer to plant into a burned down field, while others taking a more green approach and planting into still growing cover.

Speakers Dave Brandt, Bill Lehmkuhl, and Bret Margraf each take on the question in this video with Ohio Ag Net’s Joel Penhorwood.
