If you plant spring barley or oats following your cotton, any volunteer will winter kill in your wheat crop the next winter. Fallow is a conflicting thing. If you till it, you lose soil structure. If you spray it, then you lose microbial biodiversity. A growing multi species cover is ideal, but sometimes it's so dry that it is hard to get that going also.

What rates are you planting and what are you adding into the mix? Being local would give me a little better idea on what to use.

I like to use oats, radish, yellow field pea, and hairy vetch.
