Cereal rye is an “old standby” cover crop. It is widely known as the most winter hardy cover crop with the widest planting window, good rooting system, and ease of termination. The addition of oats helps to boost soil biology while the rape has an intense root system that helps to break up surface compaction.
Oats and Radish are the most simplistic cover crop mix that requires virtually no management. Oats will provide quick cover, scavenge nutrients, and boost soil biology while the radish also soaks up residual nutrients and shatters compaction. A very economical solution.
