Discussions on combating excess moisture, cover crops and more were held at the Soil Health Café Talk in Michigan, North Dakota. With unharvested crops in North Dakota fields, what options do producers in the state have come spring? The obvious goal is to get them harvested. But if that doesn’t happen, NDSU Extension rangeland and forage specialist Kevin Sedivec says to plan now. “They’re going to be dealing with all that residue let in the field and may struggle getting something planted on those 2019 acres,” says Sedivec. “If they fall into prevented plant acres, cover crops are a way to manage those acres. Cover crops are valuable to that soil and to livestock producers who can also use it for grazing or forage.” Sedivec adds if the goal is to combat excess moisture, a farmer or rancher wants green growth in a cover crop for as long as possible.
