  1. In hemp cover crop, if you are looking for more diversity, in addition to the 2 species you have, you can add Buckwheat because it cycles phosphorus very well and attracts ladybugs and preditory wasps. Coriander, and Flax are very mycorrhizal, while a brassica at low density can prevent mildew issues. Johnson-Su compost tea is a great feed/innoculant, especially if you use Zudzu to make it.

  2. Farmer Gabe Brown gives lectures and advice on the benefits high diversity no till. Every situation is unique but it's awesome!
