The installation of sown cover crops is highly recommended when the establishment of spontaneous cover crop can be troublesome and needs to be changed. The most important factor is the correct selection of species adapted to local environmental conditions and agro-ecological targets defined by the farmer. Mowing date and killing methods are also key factors. Sown cover crops compete with the spontaneous flora and make weed control easier, helping to reduce herbicide use and tillage operations.
