A primary goal of Jacob Farms is to always have something growing! The soil is a living organism and needs to be fed all year around. So when one crop comes off another goes back in, whether it is a cash crop or a cover crop. We currently grow corn, soybeans, wheat, milo, cotton and over 45 different cover crop species.
For best results, we believe in diversifying our crop rotation. Crop rotation can improve yield and profitability over time, contol weeds, break disease cycles, control pests, reduce soil erosion, improve soil tilth, increase organic matter, and reduce runoff of nutrients and chemicals.
