Spring nurse crop would be oats over rye. On a hillside- I for sure would add oats. & not till it! . You could add some rye I suppose but I’d probably do oats.I have a few clover plots that I am planning to seed this spring (I know fall is best time). As discussed above, I've used rye as a nurse crop for fall seedings, should I do the same for spring clover seeding? Or is there a better nurse crop for spring? Or should I not use a nurse crop this spring? One of the plots is on a hillside and I'm a little worried about erosion so like the idea of a nurse crop that will germinate quickly and hold the soil until the clover kicks off.
