Cover Crops

Vegetable gardening can compromise soil health over time, and therefore limit productivity. Therefore, many vegetable growers want to overcome this barrier to success with cover crops to help maintain soil health. Some of the management goals for which gardeners use cover crops include:

* Suppressing weeds
* Protecting soil from rain or runoff
* Improving soil aggregate stability
* Reducing surface crusting
* Adding active organic matter to soil
* Breaking hardpan
* Fixing nitrogen
* Scavenging soil nitrogen
* Suppressing soil diseases and pests
