Cover Crops: Winter Annual Weed Control

This photo shows the effects cover crops, specifically oats in this case, play in control of winter annual weeds. In the area where oats were planted as a cover crop there is no observance of winter annual weeds compared to the area just above where no cover crops were planted.  The same effect is happening in the area where cereal rye was planted...the only difference being that oats winter kill and the cereal rye was sprayed with a herbicide.
