It is designed for the soil, climate, cropping practices and seed market in New York. It is probably useful in adjacent states and provinces as well. However, even slightly different timing of cash crop sowing or harvest can change the opportunity to use particular cover crop.
Additional information about cover crops can be found on the Cover Crops for Vegetable Growers website maintained by Cornell Cooperative Extension.
