Keeping Our Soil Healthy With Cover Crops

Greg Greving farms with his two sons, Jeremy and Shane, near Chapman, Nebraska. They raise soybeans, corn, seed corn and wheat.

 

Keeping Our Soil Healthy With Cover Crops

  • With fall approaching, our soybeans are now turning colors and starting to reach full maturity. Harvest is just around the corner.
  • Rotating crops is essential to keep our fields healthy year after year. We are busy harvesting seed corn, which we’ve planted in this field along with a cover crop.
  • We are now disking our cover crop to help increase the organic matter in our soil.
  • We will seed another cover crop in 30 days to protect the soil from erosion and help increase the soil health. As I work every day with my sons, we’re taking important steps so that our farm can continue to keep up with our growing family.
