A practical guide to growing green manures.

Soil fertility is a primary factor influencing the yield and quality of organic crops and a key to the sustainability of organic farms. Green manures, a type of cover crop planted primarily for the purpose of improving soil fertility, are a critical management strategy for Prairie organic farmers. The adoption of a reliable, efficient and effective green manure program is a key component in not only supporting new grower transition to organic, but also in optimizing the yield and quality of prairie grains.
