Summer Lightning is a cover crop mix from Byron Seeds. It is fast to establish designed for weed control with summer grazing potential ( if grazed, the sorghum-sudan well be the only species to re-grow). This mix consist of:
- Sunn Hemp- Nitrogen fixing, soil building
- Sorghum-sudan-provides bio mass and a mycorrhizae builder
- Cowpeas-Nitrogen fixing, weed suppression, builds soil
- Lifago Buckwheat- Weed suppression, conditions soil, and extracts phosphorus and makes it more available for the next crop
Plant 20-35 lbs./A. Best planted from late May to late August. Use higher rates for weed control and grazing; use lower rates for better nitrogen fixation.
