Cover Crop Selection Tool

Cover Crop Selection Tool (beta) - Created by Shulamit Shroder and Deborah Shroder-Ravaei

Choose the conditions that best fit your field from the drop down menus below to get an idea of which cover crops might work best for your field.

Many of the ratings come from research done in different states, so check in with your local Cooperative Extension office, NRCS office, and/or your local seed dealers before buying these seeds. 

You can download the results at the bottom of the sheet.

If you change your responses, you will get different results. 

Reach out to Shulamit Shroder at sashroder@ucanr.edu if you notice any errors.
