    Their advantages are greater than the sum of their parts if well managed it would seem.

    I am going to this meeting. Frédéric Thomas is very knowledgeable about cover crop and conservation agriculture. He is also a farmer so he apply what he is talking about.
    I had the pleasure to do an internship with him and work on his farm several time, very good time. What he manage to do on his farm with minimum tillage and cover crop is incredible.

    Thanks Will.

    Cotswold Seeds / HDRA have a very good guide to green manures also.

    The info from Cotswold Seeds is very good.

    I think cover crops in No Till situations need to be cheap though and wonder if some of the more exotic covers are worth it cost wise.
