Cover crop to minimize soil compaction
Establish a cover crop mix that includes plants with both fibrous root and deep rooted
systems. Fibrous to treat and prevent both near surface (0-4”) and deep (>4”) soil
compaction and deep rooted to break up deep compacted soils. Cover crop shall not be
harvested, grazed, or burned.
