The last few years there has been a major focus on cover crops here in southeast Nebraska as well as other parts of Nebraska. Cover crops have been used for a number of years particularly in organic cropping systems. They have been a source of nitrogen, organic matter and other nutrients when incorporated as green manures in these systems. Cover crops have also been planted as forage crops for livestock for grazing or hay for many years. In recent years there has been increased interest in the use of cover crops in conventional cropping systems.
