Winter Rye is the hardiest of all cereals. It makes a great cover crop in cool areas or high altitude locations. Winter rye competes with weeds and cycles nutrients providing significant reduction in nitrate leaching. It can reduce erosion & runoff, add large amounts of organic matter, reduce disease pressure, and improve soil structure. Winter Rye is widely adapted and does well on a variety of soil types. It should planted in the fall in the colder parts of the United States. Warmer areas should plant AGS104 rye or Merced Rye.
Plant at 80 to 100 pounds per acre.
