The benefits of cover crops

Cover crops are major agronomic tools for agriculture and rotations. Often called green manure, cover crops have many benefits: improvment of soil fertility, nitrogen fixation, reduction of erosion, nitrogen traping, soil life and structure improvment, weed control and herbicide reduction.  

They are now used for all kind of farming: conventional, organic, low-imput agriculture, no-till farming, etc. 
Thus, cover crops actively contribute to a more sustainable agriculture where soil, water resources protection and development of biodiversity are priorities.
