Product Description

Description

Cereal Rye is the hardiest of fall-planted cover crops, Elbon rye is one of the “last chance” crop for late fall plantings. If planted late, it may not provide much winter cover, but if it has germinated, it will show rapid spring growth, suppressing weeds and providing forage or grain for harvest. If planted early enough, it makes a great winter grazing. Elbon rye is an earlier-maturing rye. It is adapted to the Southern and Central United States. 

Management

Cereal rye can establish in very cool weather in a variety of soil types. It can be killed by incorporating, spraying, or after boot stage, by mowing or rolling with a stalk chopper. Rye can deplete soil moisture in a dry spring. In a wet spring, it can overwhelm the next crop with residual. Rye has an allelopathy effect, which works on suppressing weeds but may also stunt a following corn crop. 

Establishment

Drill 1 in to 1 1/2 in deep at 60-112 lbs./A or broadcast or aerial-seed into standing corn at the higher rate from early September to November. Use 50-60 lbs./A in mixes
