Advice about cover crop

iamzvonko(5)February 24, 2013

This is probably a stupid question but ... what advice do you experts have for when and how to deal with yellow clover as a cover crop?

I planted yellow clover last fall and now I am not sure when I'm supposed to till it in. I'm in zone 5 (northern Ohio). I'll be starting to plant some of the early stuff on a few weeks. Should I wait until just before I plant or do I turn it over now?

Also, HOW do I turn it over? Do I just use a hoe or do I need to run a tiller through it?

Thanks for any feedback
