Cover Crop Revisited.

October 2008 - Fully grown oat covercrop.


October 2008 - The oat crop rolled and flattened to produce a 'weed mat.'


April 2009 - Residue of oats still suppressing weeds. Note their is no Fat Hen or Wireweed in midrow. Importantly for this grower the weed mat has made Innocent Weed control much easier.
