I was in a field this week where a summer cover crop was planted about a week after corn was harvested.  The grower planted quickly to avoid giving the weeds a chance to grow up once the corn was gone. A mixture of sorghum-sudangrass, sunflowers, daikon radish, and clay peas was planted and it grew up quite well considering how dry the late summer and fall have been.
