Depending on your needs and the cover crop(s) you plant, you can enhance water retention and infiltration, decrease erosion, amp up organic matter, extend grazing seasons… and so much more.
Let the SDSU Extension team put research-based information to work and help you decide the best cover crop(s) to meet your production goals.
