  “Green manure” is the name given to cover crops that are planted for the purpose of adding nutrients and organic matter to the soil. These plants can be as effective as animal manure in producing humus, thereby increasing soil fertility and structure. Green manure cover crops are inexpensive to plant, and serve multiple purposes. Best of all, they can be put to work during times of the   Green Manures / Cover Crops Benefits of using green manures Green manuring offers an inexpensive way of improving crop yields and it takes little extra effort. Green manures are especially important on farms where there is not enough animal manure available, and when it is not possible to bring in natural fertilisers from elsewhere.

Advantages • Green manuring improves soil structure, increases water holding capacity and decreases soil loss by erosion. • Growing of green manure crops in the off season reduces weed proliferation and weed growth. • Green manuring helps in reclamation of alkaline soils. • Root knot nematodes can be controlled by green manuring. :// Buckwheat, like many cover crops, can scavenge and pull up phosphorous from the soil into more plant-friendly forms. Conditions the Soil: Buckwheat is small, but mighty. It does not have the massive root-drilling power of daikon radish cover crop, but its many, tiny roots pump out delicious soil

Nutrient and Soil Conservation--These two other benefits of green manuring are closely related. Since green manure crops are often sown in the fate summer or fall after a primary crop, the green manure cover or catch crop utilizes excess fertilizer not taken up by the main ://   wheat.

When the green manure plants are about to flower they can be cut and left, or ploughed into the soil. Using green manures mixed with crops This method is used mostly with maize growing. An easy method is to sow a green manure at the same time as maize, and then dig it in when it is time to weed the maize (after weeks).

Green manure crops can be part of a garden crop rotation, growing in a planting bed or allotment for a full season. A good home garden/allotment green manure strategy is to use green manure crops as catch crops.

A catch crop is a filler crop; it grows in a vacant spot before or after a main crop. A catch crop can be interplanted with your main How to improve the fertility of your soil is a question that all good gardeners take seriously.

One of the most under-used methods of soil improvement is the use of green manures (often called ‘cover crops’ in America), plants grown specifically to be dug back into the soil to improve it.

In principle this sounds pretty easy – just sprinkle some seed on the ground after the main crop has   Green manuring can improve soil physical, chemical, and biological properties and consequently crop yields. Furthermore, potential benefits of green manuring are reduced nitrate (NO 3 −) leaching risk and lower fertilizer N requirements for succeeding crops.

However, its influence may vary from soil to soil, crop to crop, environmental Some green manures require you to sow in the winter and others in the spring. It is best to combine more than one green manure and rotate what you plant from year to year.

Green Manure Crops. Green manure crops, on the other hand, are usually planted in the early spring, or in the middle of a growing season. They are also grown for a much shorter length of time.
