With warmer-than-normal temperatures throughout much of the midwest, the window for cover crop planting this season may be extended in certain areas according to Keith Berns, owner of Green Cover Seed out of Bladen, Nebraska.

Along with monitoring forecasted conditions, how late you can plant also depends on what type of cover crop you’re targeting. Berns points to winter peas and several species of cereals as examples that could work well as a late planting. Read more on fall cover crop planting here.
