Nitrogreen Mix from Byron Seeds is a tremendous N builder for green manure crop. Up to 100-150 units of N for next crop. Mix consist of: Vetch 60%, Red Clover 10%, Yellow Sweet Blossom Clover 10%, Crimson clover 10%, Balansa Clover 5%, Nitro Radish 5%
- The taproot of the radish breaks up hardpan and recycles deeply buried nutrients
- Yellow blossom 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.
