Hairy Vetch was once widely used for hay, but due to its vining habit, was difficult to handle. Modern hay-making equipment handles it with ease, although the leaves will dry and fall off before the stems are dry. Can be grazed although it is not well liked by animals. Fall growth is slow but spring growth is rampant. For best organic matter amounts, fall seeding is best. Often used in mixes and seldom planted alone, hairy vetch fixes as much nitrogen as subsequent crops may need.

Chickling Vetch is drought tolerant, moisture efficient, resistant to many insects and diseases, and suitable for a variety of climates and soil types. It has been found to markedly enhance all major components of soil biological quality and boost soil fertility. AC Greenfix should be of interest to every farmer who wants to increase soil fertility and improve yields and soil conservation.
Johnnys is committed to your success and is with you every step of the way.
