Cover Crops that Did Not Winter Kill

Gordon Johnson, Extension Vegetable & Fruit Specialist; gcjohn@udel.edu

With the mild winter, many cover crops have not fully winter killed including fall planted spring oats, forage radish, and some mustard species. For vegetable growers seeking to have early areas for spring planting, this will require that these cover crops be killed by herbicides, low mowing, or tillage. This will also limit the potential to no-till vegetables into these areas.
