Medium maturity, large-leaved, double-cut. Medium-green leaflets with white marking. Large amounts of forage during the season. Excellent winter-hardiness and drought tolerance. Very good rotational grazing.
Crimson clover has erect stems, grows more quickly and has larger seeds than the more commonly used red clover. Crimson clover's primary advantages are rapid growth during cool weather and shade tolerance. Crimson clover can be planted
early in the spring or fall for weed control, overseeded in corn at second cultivation or in soybeans at leaf drop. Because of its shade tolerance, crimson clover is also effective as a living ground cover in orchards. Crimson clover has been used
effectively to suppress weeds when planted in the early fall, following a short-season crop such as potatoes, snap beans, vegetables or following winter wheat. Planting
with a grass, such as fast growing oats, gives additional weed control in these situations.
Buckwheat, when used as a cover crop, can reduce both the emergence and growth of weeds, thereby providing an easy and economical alternative to herbicides. Buckwheat is a short-duration, broad-leaved, annual species which provides effective weed suppression due to its rapid early growth that establishes a canopy faster than many weeds.
SW Annual Pollinator Mix is formulated to be a beneficial pollinator mix, but an excellent cover crop mix that will build the soil with nitrogen and organic matter. Since the mix is annual, timing is important for proper planting time and should be sown early enough to have bloom for the pollinator species. Spring planting or early fall is ideal. Seed at 25-30 lbs. per acre.
CREST Timothy Farm Science Genetics®. Medium-late maturity. Significant forage yield advantage over Climax. Excellent spring vigor and plant health. Strong summer regrowth after cutting. Very winter- hardy and palatable. Excellent with legumes or where later hay harvests occur due to wet soil conditions. Seed at 8-10 lbs. alone, 4-6 lbs. in mixes.
GREENGRAZER V 63-65 Day Hybrid Sorghum - Sudangrass Farm Science Genetics®. Small seeded three way cross with thin stems that are highly palatable. Very fast regrowth after cutting. Possesses the Green Top trait, which allows for further extension of the plant. Planting at higher populations will result in a finer stemmed forage. Finer stems will allow the forage to dry faster for higher quality hay than is possible with thick stemmed types. Seed at 35-50 lbs. per acre.
Early - medium-maturing timothy that is easily established. High forage yields, very winter hardy and leafy. It responds extremely well to moisture and performs well in soils with good drainage. Suited for hay and pasture. Seed at 8-10 lbs. alone, 3-8 lbs. in mixes.
Medium maturity. The most common and widely used Timothy. Later maturing than most other grasses and usully produces a large first cut bale but has much lower production in later cuts. Persists in poor and adverse conditions. Seed at 8-10 lbs. alone, 4-6 lbs. in mixes.
Superior for hay or grazing. Early maturing, Leafy, great palatability, improved summer regrowth. Works well in pure stands or with legumes. Excellent spring vigor. Winter-hardy. Seed at 8-10 lbs. alone, 4-6 lbs. in mixes.
Late maturity and superior yield potential. Good maturity fit with alfalfa. Excellent plant vigor, increased stand persistence, drought tolerance, stem rust resistance and great palatability. All-Vantage®
treated. Use in pure stands or grass and legume mixtures. Available “Easy Sow” hulled, best choice for air or hydro-seeding.
Early maturity and outstanding yield potential. Ideal for hay production or pastures. Excellent plant vigor, quick recovery after cutting and great palatability. Drought tolerance and stem rust resistance. Straight stands or grass and legume mixtures. Excellent for grazing!
GroundHog™ Brand radish produces more root mass than oil seed radish or mustards. This extra large root system allows GroungHog™ to pull nitrogen and nutrients deep within the soil and bring them back to the surface.
GroundHog™ Brand radish has 2-4 times the amount of roots as rye or rape. (at 10"-20") Upon decomposition, these roots leave large holes in the ground that improve water infiltration and soil aeration.
According to University of Maryland soil scientist, Ray Weil, a radish cover crop will capture 150 to 200 pounds of nitrogen per acre before winter killing. Upon decomposition, the nitrogen uptake becomes available to the next cash crop. GroundHog™ Brand radish will scavenge other nutrients as well.
Applications: Use as a cover crop to "mine" nitrogen and other nutrients that normally would leach out of your soils. GroundHog™ can also be used for weed suppression. When planted in August, radish cover crops emerged at the same time as the weeds but grow rapidly forming a closed canopy by the beginning of October, a month before spring oat and fall rye cover crops. During the winter, radish will decompose leaving a thin film of residue covering the soil.
Sowing and Establishment:
Seed from August - September (earlier in the north and later in the south) at 10-12lbs per acre. Broadcasted, or ¼ inch deep if drilled. Aerial seeding into soybeans before leaf drop. Apply 60 units of N for best root growth potential. GroundHog™ doesn't like wet spots and will winter kill with temperatures in the teens.
GroundHog™ can be planted with other brassicas, clovers and grasses. As with all brassica crops, GroundHog™ should be use in a rotation with other species.
Austrian Winter Peas is a cool-season, annual legume with good nitrogen-fixing capabilities. It is low-growing and has been shown to fix over 200 pounds of nitrogren per acre under good conditions. Stems are hollow, slender, succulent and 2 to 4 feet long.
The foliage is pale green with flowers that are colored purple, pink, or reddish. The leaf consists of one to three pairs of leaflets and terminally branched tendrils.
Pods are 1.5 to 2.5 inches long with 3 to 5 round, dark-colored seed. Seed color is commonly gray with purple or brown mottles.
