Exclusive! Versatile choice for late-summer and fall planting.
This ready-made mix is comprised of winter rye, field peas, ryegrass, crimson clover, and hairy vetch. Vigorous late-summer growth provides winter erosion control. The peas, clover, and ryegrass will winter kill to provide organic matter and soil cover. The hairy vetch and winter rye will regrow in the spring to provide nutrients for crops to utilize. Because the seeds of this mix vary in weight and size, it is best seeded with a grain drill. Sow at 50 lb./acre or 1 1/2 lb./1,000 sq.ft. Inoculate with Garden Combination Inoculant (#7531) or Pea, Vetch, and Lentil Inoculant (#7534) for best performance. Avg. 40,000 seeds/lb.
CULTURE: Sow the seeds at the time, rate, and depth specified in the product description. FOR GREEN MANURE: Till in at any growth stage. FOR ORNAMENTAL USE OR GRAIN HARVEST: Cut the plants near the base when most of the green color has turned brown and the seeds are hardening (no longer milky). SEED SPECS: Planting rates are listed in the product description.
