Planting and destruction are the two main phases in cover crop management techniques. Their dates and implementation conditions play a key role in terms of the various functions targeted for these crops (nitrate-trapping, erosion prevention, weed control, effect on next crop, etc.). The analysis of the literature therefore focused on cover crop planting and destruction techniques. The aim was to identify the different methods and, if possible, their effectiveness with respect to the success of sowing and destruction. The issue of the implementation of these techniques by farmers was then examined by analysing the constraints in terms of organization of labour and implementation costs.
