Fall Weed Biomass

We have found that our cover crop mixtures can provide excellent weed suppression. They are not necessarily better than the single-species cover crops -- note that rye and oats both suppressed weeds as well as or better than the mixtures. However, it is good news for mixture-makers that you can get good weed suppression from a mixture, even one that includes a low seeding rate of rye and oats. So, we recommend starting your mixture with 1-2 good weed suppressors, and then adding more species to achieve other goals.
