If you’re harvesting maize and looking for winter cover, as long as conditions allow you could consider sowing cereal rye & vetch or a short term ryegrass ley (Westerwold or Italian), which provides early grazing & or silage/hay next season.

Our new grass ley is growing on well as the field slowly turns from brown to green. Giving this field a break from growing grain and helping us look after our soil quality.

From Lewes in East Sussex. A fortnight after sowing, this field looked like the Sahara but the recent rains and warm temperatures have proved perfect weather for the Cotswold Seeds 4 year herbal ley. Importantly, the chicory has germinated.

It’s difficult to be as diverse as I’d like in our short term leys as the legumes and herbs take time to establish - this is a permanent ley we herbalized in the spring with an oversow mix from Its going down well!
