nursery operations

Descriptor: Management
Description: A cover or green manure crop is typically grown during the fallow year. A cover crop protects the soil from wind and water erosion and controls weeds, whereas a green manure crop is primarily grown to supply organic matter to the soil. These crops also capture mineral nutrients, such as phosphorus and iron, in a readily-available form. The cover crop is plowed down in the late summer to allow time for the organic matter to decompose.
