A lot of people are planting cover crops and getting them established right after harvest of cotton or peanuts.

Small grains (wheat, oats, rye) and legume (clover, vetch) mixes are common and very beneficial.

Cover crops are a great way to give some added nitrogen leading into the next crop (legumes), reduce soil erosion, conserve water, adding organic matter, reduce weed pressure, and improve soil quality.

Listed below are some links to the statewide variety testing for many winter cover crops, and the latest wheat production guide.
