  1. Cover Crops Roundtables
    Author(s): Amber Emmons, CCA

    Paulding County Extension is expanding its Cover Crops Roundtable Series to include 2 new locations, hosted by the OSU Extension Water Quality Team. This series acts as a platform for farmer-to-farmer interaction, with OSU Extension serving as the discussion moderator. The goal of the series is to allow peer learning through networking, problem-solving, and idea sharing regarding the benefits and challenges of growing cover crops on the farm.

    Seed quality is key to establishing a good crop (or cover crop). Earlier this year, the Ohio Seed Improvement Association seed test laboratory closed. However, if you need your cover crop or wheat seed tested this fall, some alternatives include the Illinois Crop Improvement Association, Indiana Crop Improvement Association, and Michigan Crop Improvement Association.

    Due to a late harvest and adverse weather conditions, the Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) is extending the 2021 H2Ohio Program deadline for planting overwintering cover crops, including those following small grains, and manure incorporation. With the recent expansion, all 24 counties in the Western Lake Erie Basin are now included in the H2Ohio Program.

  6. Cover Crop
    Author(s): Alyssa Essman

    Cooler temperatures and maturing crops indicate the start of harvest season.  For those growers using cover crops to protect soil and suppress weeds over the winter, it also means the time to establish fall-planted cover crops is imminent.

  7. Cover crop mix in field.

    OSU Extension will host two educational field days focused on soil health and cover crops next week. Extension specialists and farmers experienced with cover crops will present on topics including inter-seeding cover crops into a growing crop, terminating cover crops, cover crop variety selection, and more. Field demonstrations, cover crop plots, and equipment demonstrations will be on-site.

    Each field day is free to attend. Registration is appreciated. Register at go.osu.edu/RegionalFieldDay

  8. field of cereal rye cover crop

    Cover crops are used for a variety of reasons in a crop rotation. Adding cover crops can improve soil structure, retain nutrients, suppress weeds, reduce water and wind erosion, increase soil organic matter and provide forage. The presence of a cover crop can also influence the amount of nitrogen, phosphorus  and sediment in surface and subsurface water leaving at the edge of field. A summary of cover crops water quality impacts from Ohio field comparisons was recently published.

    This summer we planted a variety of cover crops in the AgCrops Plots at Farm Science Review. We took some video before the killing frost a few weeks ago. Listen in as we discuss the species and benefits in this short video. Check back throughout the winter as we monitor how each species breaks down or survives until planting next spring.
