Nitrogreen North (Nitrogreen N) from Byron Seeds is very similar to Nitrogen South except it uses Medium Red Clover and Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover instead of Crimson Clover for more winter hardiness. It also includes tillage radishes. Up to 100-150 units of N for next crop. Seed August 15th through September 10th. Winter hardy if seeded early enough to get clover established.
- The taproot of the radish breaks up hardpan and recycles deeply buried nutrients
- Yellowblossom sweet clover is actually one of the deepest rooting annual legumes
- Red Clover is used in this mix because it is more winter hardy than crimson which helps ensure good performance in the northern zones.
- Hairy Vetch is the anchor legume of the mix due to its impressive N fixing capability and spring weed suppressing ability
Seed 15-25 lbs/acre. Drill 1/2″ deep.
Nitrogreen North has to be sprayed or moldboard plowed in the spring before planting the cash crop. Direct seeding is best but also a relatively early seeding date is needed in northern zones to make sure the legumes are established enough to be winter hardy. Seeding into standing corn that has dried up to the ear can be effective.
