    Cover crop after OSR !!!

    Sowing a cover crop after OSR cannot make sense to me,or am I missing something !!. I ask the question as I know where a large acreage has been sown with a cover crop after rape. Surely the volunteer rape will act as cover crop.

    I agree. The best form of cover crop is natural regeneration. Ie volunteers. Paying good money for a pedders mix strikes me as nuts but what do I know.
