Cover crops often improve the fertility of the soil they're planted in, because they return essential nutrients to it. Planting them annually will definitely reduce the amount of natural amendments, compost, and manure you have to add to your soil. Note that the type of cover crop you choose to cultivate can also determine which nutrients are put into the ground. For example, planting a legume cover crop will add some nitrogen back into the dirt.
For the most part, you’ll plant all cover crops in the same manner, no matter which specific varieties you choose to grow. You’ll want to gently rake up the surface of the area you’re planting them in to give the seeds a better chance of germinating. Then, sprinkle the seeds around that area (no need to worry about making rows or having a certain number of seeds per spot). You’ll then want to rake the area again to cover the seeds with some soil and keep away the birds. Adding a light layer of straw or hay over them can be helpful as well.
