Hello. I have a 2 acre fallow field full of weeds in Kent county MI. I would like to plant a crop in the field this year with the goal of improving overall soil health, increasing the PH level (currently 6.2) and weed suppression.
I believe I will be planting no-till, by spraying glysophate 7-10 days before planting, but I do have access to a roto-tiller if needed.
I would like the crop to be easy to establish as well, without the need for maintenance, fertilizing, or watering.
Common suggestions that I have seen are: winter cereal rye, sorghum, winter barley, and oats, but I am open to any suggestions.
What plants do you recommend?
