i do it, but i live in a area thats dry more often than wet.in my opinion it helps to hold what moisture i do get by adding organic matter to the soil. will it save nutrients? it depends ,most crops have to be turned under green to add the most nutrients back to the ground. dried crops mostly add organics that aid in moisture retention,but they will add some nutrients,and have a extra benifit of attracting earthworms and things as they decompose. soil erosion would be largly dependant on where and how you turned them under.if it were mine, and i really decided to turn them under i would run my brushhog over them first. this would make them decompose faster.then if you not going to try a second crop, such as soybeans,maybe plant a cover crop that would be turned under before planting in the spring to prevent erosion. to a certain extent this is simply a different type of farming. BE CAREFUL though, if you have crop insurance make sure you can simply plow it under.some might require you to harvest even if there little to nothing there. ive heard of that.
