New at Early's! Green Manure Crop Cover. What is it, and what is it used for?

A green manure crop is grown primarily for the purpose of being plowed down to add nutrient & organic matter to the soil. Organic farmers consider green manures to be an essential part of the farm ecosystem. Green manure plays a role in soil improvement, nutrient management, & pest management. They are effective in controlling erosion, adding organic matter, improving soil structure, stimulating biological diversity, stimulating biological activity in the soil & reducing compaction in soil. The benefit of green manure can vary with the type of crop & timing of the plow down process. The rate of decomposition also varies with soil & climate conditions.
