Cress is a good weed suppressant, germinates quickly and provides very good ground shade. Its good soil coverage combined with moderate biomass formation make cress an excellent catch crop before mulch sowing of crops such as maize in spring. It dies back reliably in winter.
Cress is a cruciferous plant and so should not be grown in crop rotation cycles including intensive sugar beet and/or rapeseed cultivation.
