FSFSS OPTIONS

WALNUT CREEK SEEDS HAS SEVERAL COVER CROP OPTIONS TO HELP ALLEVIATE FSFSS

WINTER CEREAL RYE
It’s not too late this year to plant cereal rye as it will germinate down to 37F soil temperature. We recommend drilling at 65lbs/acre or 80lbs/acre broadcast at this late date.

FOR FROST SEEDING
Try a mix with KB Annual Ryegrass, Red Clover and Crimson Clover to go to corn.

IN THE SPRING
as soon as the ground is fit, consider drilling in a simple Oats/Field Peas mix and maybe adding in Crimson Clover and Buckwheat.

All of these species will be quick to emerge in cold weather.  Allow the cover crop to grow into mid to late May before “planting green” and terminating the cover crop prior to corn emergence.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU AS WE LOOK TO 2020!
