This video was taken from a cover crop plot in Newton County Indiana. The plot was in a field that was prevented from being planted by water ponding in the Spring of 2010. The mix is called “N-Vest Crimson Cover-All Mix” and is sold by CISCO Seeds. Even with very little moisture, (it was planted in late July) the mixture grew very well

What will this mix do in a clay soil. It’s easy to see good results in soil that “black”.
Curt, Some of the best results I have seen on cover crops have been in heavy clay soils. It’s actually easier to see soil and yield improvement on the “less than ideal” soils than it is on the “best” soils. Certainly radishes and crimson clover have many excellent qualities that will do very well in clay soils.
