Legumes

Some legumes are an excellent cover crop to plant in order to build nitrogen in the soil. They are used for forage items as they are high in protein. Many of them also produce flowers that are highly attractive to pollinators, like bees.

Warm Season Legumes

Depending on when you want to plant, dictates which legumes will be the best option. Warm season legumes perform best when planted from March to June.
