I don't know why my 2 previous replies did not go through, but here is
I've never planted beets in a rye/vetch cover. the challenge is to get a
very small seed, planted shallow, with precision. Here are some
suggestions: Have a large coulter to cut through the cover. Might need
some sort of a residue remover to push some of the cover aside to get
good seed placement. then you need a good seeder to place the seeds
acurately and at the proper depth. This could be done by hand I think,
if you design a small tool to do the same thing.
I am working now on my new no till veggie planter. I know the pains and
the satifaction of pioneering new equipment.
Do you use a roller to kill your cover crop?
