Rolling down cereal rye this morning after no-till planting soybeans. We are using what equipment we had already on the farm here, and only using the roller on the rear of the implement. The rye is pollinating, which is a great time to roll it down, killing it. This cover crop has helped soak up the excess rainfall this spring, but also kept the moisture in place for the soybeans. Not to mention prevented soil erosion from heavy rains. Also, the rye will help prevent weeds from germinating. Compared to other places we no-tilled soybeans with no cereal rye cover crop, this was the best planting conditions we have had all spring. You can bet we will be doing more of this next year!
