Ok I have to rotate my rape/turnip plots.What can I plant in spring that will feed throughout spring and summer that can be replaced in fall with fall/winter crop.I'm leaning toward either rye/peas for fall-winter.Maybe red clover for spring?
I planted Berseem clover last year but both fields I planted it in were taken over by weeds. I wasn't impressed with it but others have used it with success. I've planted soybeans the last two years on two acres. The deer were kind enough to keep the plot mowed down fairly well which allowed me to seed brassicas on top in late August and I got a decent crop but not as good as when I disked and the field up first.
I'd suggest soybeans, peas, buckwheat or some annual clover. The buckwheat is supposed to keep weeds down naturally.
