Sometimes a farmer finds it necessary to plant a piece of land late in the season such action may be caused by drought, too much moisture, or other causes. This necessitates the use of a crop not ordinarily planted. Such crop, usually known as a "catch crop", must be one which has a chance of producing a reasonable return from late planting.
