Cover crop kill
Before this mix of rain/snow hit, I heard some concern about cover crops growing so large there were concerns it would be hard to kill so the main crop could grow. Have there been any concerns in your area?

Re: Cover crop kill
There is always that concern terminating winter rye in the Spring. I sprayed my 1 to 2 foot tall rye 9 days ago with 40oz when it was sunny and temp near 70*. Clouds, cold temps, and rain soon came. It has stopped growing and is slowly turning pale. A slow death but I think I'm ok. I plan to no-til beans into it next week. The sun is now shining.
