Best fall/ winter cover crops in southern Appalachia. Soil test great but phosphorus a little low.

Asked June 17, 2018, 1:31 PM EDT

After spring soil test, planted buckwheat in rows amongst pole & zipper beans, & summer & winter squash.& corn, What cover crops best next? Should I reseed buckwheat or plant more purple hull crowder?

Sorry for the delay in writing. I hate not to give you a more direct answer but the type of cover crop you need depends on your soil improvement goals. I found a great free online resource for you and this link will take you to a summary page.
