90/10 Green Blend is a mix of winter triticale and annual ryegrass. Triticale is a cross between winter wheat and cereal rye. Its winter hardiness allows it to grow later in the fall than other cover crops. Its fibrous roots continue to grow through the winter down to 60 inches or more, building soil organic matter. It is a good weed suppresser. The annual ryegrass helps with erosion control and weed suppression. The massive root system can grow down to 54 inches, providing channels for air, water, and following crop root systems. Ryegrass adds higher fiber digestibility and sugar content.
- Ration of 90% winter triticale and 10% annual ryegrass
- Tremendous quality and tonnage
- Grazing, haylage or baleage
Caution: Allelopathy could affect the next crop unless either some light tillage is done or a large amount of liquid manure is applied. Drill at 1/2-3/4 inch deep. Suggested seed rate is 100#/A.
