We have the capability to fill 1000 lb mini totes with any cover crop you want. Please inquire and we will work on filling this mini tote with your cover crop needs.
GroundHog produces more root mass than oil seed radish, allowing it to capture 150 to 200 lbs of nitrogen per acre and other nutrients that would leach out of the soil. GroundHog winter kills leaving nutients in near the surface and holes in the ground that improve water infilatration and soil aeration. Can be grazed if seeded in combination with Pasja Forage Turnip and FrostMaster Peas.
Seed in the late summer at rate of 8 lbs/acre, at 1/4 inch depth.
Long tapered tap root is designed to break up hard pans. This creates root channels, improved water infiltration and aerations for warmer spring soil planting temperatures. Tap Master does and excellent job of capturing nutrients and recycling them. Expect Tap Master to completely winter kill and leave little or no residue.
Seed at 8-10 lbs./acre alone or at 5 lbs./acre in combination with winter peas.
Brusier can provide very rapid top growth cover that is very cold tolerant. It has roots up to three feet deep to capture nutrients, as well as break up soil compaction. Brusier is highly palatable, start grazing at 10 to 12 inches and remove animals when at 3 to 4 inches.
Seed for forage purposes at 40lbs/acre and cover crop utilization at 20 lbs/acre, at 1/4 inch seeding depth.
Frostmaster is a versatile pea that can be seeded as a fall cover crop or spring forage crop. It has good frost tolernace, growing late into the fall, with good Nirtogen production. Frostmaster is a white flowered pea and is very palatable.
Seed at 20 lbs/acre, in combination with 5 lbs/acre of cover crop radish. (Inoculated for best results.)
Dixie Crimson clover is a winter annual and summer legume that will survive over winter when planted as a fall cover crop. Seeded in early fall it will produce 30 to 40 pounds of nitrogen before winter dormancy. Use in conjunction with Bruiser Diploid Ryegrass or Groundhog Radish as a fall cover crop.
Seed at 10-12 lbs/acre or 5 lbs per acre in cover crop mixture.
Viper balansa clover is an early maturing, high-yielding annual legume able to tolerate a wide range of soils. It produces significant amounts of nitrogen, ideal for cover crops and animal feed. Viper may be cut for stored forage or grazed. It is highly digestible, and adapted to rotational grazing. Viper can also take close grazing, even when young. Abundant flowers attract pollinators while hard seed production provides natural reseeding. Early trial results indicate Viper also has moderately good winter hardiness.
Seed at a rate of 5-8 lbs. per acre.
Mammoth Red Clover, Y.B. Sweetclover and Alsike Clover mixtures are best frost seeded into winter wheat at the rate of 10 to 12 lbs./acre. They can fix up to 100 lbs. of Nitrogen/acre if seed is inoculated. S.C. Plowdown Clover Mix provides consistent results over a wide range of conditions. (Inoculated for best results)
Seed at 10 to 12 lbs./acre
TNT Hairy Vetch is a winter annual, when seeded in late summer, it provides ground cover all winter long. Long used in gardens to provide organic matter and fix up to 100 lbs/acre of Nitrogen if seed is inoculated. (Requires vetch specific inoculant)
Seeding rate of 30 lbs/acre at a depth of no more than a half inch.
GroundHog Forage Radish combined with FrostMaster Winter Pea’s ability to fix organic nitrogen, which GroundHog Radish utilizes to send deep tapered roots to fracture hard pans. Both die back with winter freezing temperatures.
Tap Master Radish formulated with Lynx Winter Peas to utilize the nitrogen fixing capability of Lynx Winter Peas, which Tap Master utilizes to send deep tapered roots to fracture hard pans. Lynx Peas overwinter to provide erosion protection and
additional spring nitrogen fixation
Nitro Radish formulated with Austrain Peas to utilize the nitrogen fixing capacity of Austrian Peas, which Nitro Radish utilizes to send deep tapered roots to fracture hard pans. Both die back with winter freezing temperatures.
