Central Oregon - Cover Crops

Asked April 15, 2019, 7:57 PM EDT

Hello - we have a small farm in SE Bend with 5-6 acres where we plan to plant cover crops to improve the soil for eventual organic farming in future years. The soil is sandy here and we have already amended with tons of manure. I read Clare Sullivan's recent article about cover crops in Central Oregon and have a few questions: https://extension.oregonstate.edu/exploring-cover-crops-central-oregon - Where can I buy recommended cover crop seeds? - Is anyone available to visit our farm in person and help us develop a plan? - Are there results yet from the Fall trial and recommended cover crops? Thank you. Linda Wallace 61735 Cougar Trl Bend, OR 97701 (310) 936-3980
