Cover Crops in Prevented Planting

It’s estimated that about 5% of corn and soybean fields were lost causing about $300 million in crop value lost in 2015’s floods.  Are some of your fields a part of this?  Unfortunately it’s too late to plant a cash crop for 2015 but Cover crops are a great way to protect your soil and even add nutrients for the 2016 season.  Need help deciding what to plant to help your soil?  Here is a great link that will go over all the details of each kind of cover crop.
