Under-planting Green Manures Sow main season green manures as an under crop. We shall start the series with the Crop, choosing which green manure to grow.

A catch crop can be interplanted with your main crops.

Adequate storage area allows for greater flexibility in timing of manure use.

Horse manure is commonly stockpiled prior to use. Soils high in organic matter and nitrate have higher available N in the soil and require less N. Sorghum-sudangrass hybrids and other sorghum-related crops and cultivars suppress some species of nematodes.

Highest producer of biomass of the summer cover crops. These warm season annuals can produce lots of forage in a short period of time during the summer months. Heat, moisture and fertility will make them very productive. When moisture is short they will wait for the rain.
