Remember Spring?

No Comments »

A bit cold outside so I thought I would add a nice green springtime Pic. In late August of 2011 we applied winter rye into growing soybeans. The rye took root and began to grow and then went dormant in the fall. In the spring of 2012 the rye began growing again. On May 8th it looked like this. The rye does not interfere with the soybeans the year before and then aids soil microbial activity in the winter/spring and finally provides biomass when it is incorporated into the soil.
