A cover crop is a noncash crop grown in the middles between tree rows and, in some situations, between trees within rows. Cover crops can provide many benefits in orchards and vineyards and have seen increasing use in recent years. This new handbook outlines a step-by-step process for success – including suggested cover crops, orchard factors to consider when choosing a cover crop, how and when to plant, and how to manage the cover crop.
