Because of the unique circumstances that we are in this year, Legend Seeds is working hard to provide cropping options to meet your needs. Cover crops can be a good way to take advantage of an otherwise unfortunate situation. Benefits accomplished with these cover crops will put farmers at an advantage for the following cash crop and for years to come. As the demand for traditional cover crop seed rises and becomes hard to find, there are other crops that may be classified as a cover crop and may be planted on your prevent plant acres.
