ATTRA Publication Offers Advice on Cover Crops

The type of cover crop best suited for you can vary depending on your climate, soil, and other needs. ATTRA’s recent publication, “Cover Crop Options for Hot and Humid Areas,” provides insight into the characteristics of cover crops that are better suited for areas with hot, humid summers, like the southern portions of Texas and Florida and along the Gulf Coast, the Caribbean, Hawaii, and points beyond with similar climatic conditions.

The publication addresses the challenge of organic crop production in hot, humid places through proper cover-crop selection and management. Which covers are most appropriate? Which can take the heat? You can find the answers free online at https://attra.ncat.org/attra-pub/summaries/summary.php?pub=570.
