Spring Green Manure Mix

Organic Cover Crop Seed

Product ID: 976G

Enrich the soil with both nitrogen and organic matter.

We use this mix on our farm in Albion. The mix contains field peas, oats, and hairy vetch. Designed for spring sowing, but it may be sown anytime early spring through late summer. Sow 5 lb./1,000 sq.ft. (200 lb./acre) and cover lightly. For green manure, incorporate into the soil anytime your garden schedule suggests. Mid and late summer sowings may be left to winter over and the vetch allowed to regrow some in the spring. Inoculate with #9321 or #9359 for best performance. Organically grown. Avg. 14,000 seeds/lb.
