Cover Crop Services

Edd’s Supplies, Inc. and Cover Crop Services have teamed up to bring you the best options and prices available for cover crops in the area.

 

Run by Zach Bolla, Cover Crop Services offers a variety of cover crops and the service to go with it.  Zach will meet with growers to determine what cover crops are best for your needs.

With a seed blender we can ensure you get the best mix to meet your needs.  Cover crop seeds available alone or in a custom mix are listed below. Available bulk or in tote bags, delivery is available for an additional charge.

Cover crops have become exceedingly popular the last few years as growers discover their advantages.  These benefits include:

  • Prevents Soil Erosion
  • Increase Soil Quality
  • Prevents Nutrient Loss
  • Provides Weed Control
  • Creates habitat for beneficial insects
  • Suppresses Diseases / Nematodes
  • Provides Nitrogen from Legumes

Several factors go into determining which cover crops are best for which situation.  In addition to deciding which benefit most suits your circumstances, other considerations include how to seed the cover crop, how to terminate the cover crop’s growth and tillage expectations.

Green Manure and Radish, good for gardens, and Hungry Buck food plot mixes are available in smaller quantities.
