Know your herbicide risk before you plant cover crops

With the growing interest in cover crops, growers need to remind themselves of the potential for injury from residual herbicides they may have used this spring. This is especially true if herbicide applications were delayed due to the wet spring. The breakdown of some herbicides can be affected by pH so be aware of your field’s variability in soil pH. Even some post-emergent herbicides can have residual activity that could injure cover crops. Call us at Soil Solutions if we can help you with your cropping decisions. [1]
