4871 Oats - Milling - Organic
One of the most versatile greenmanures and covercrops. We use Oats as a fall covercrop where we will be planting into early spring. It is a quick growing annual greencrop that dies in the winter. When planted in late summer it scavenges and ties up nutrients for following crops, it grows quick and dies over the winter. When planting in spring, work into the soil before heads appear for maximum greenmanure value. Oats is commonly used as a nurse crop for grass seed, clovers and alfalfa. Seeding rate: 2-3 lbs per 1000 sq. ft., 60-100lbs/acre drilled, 110-140lbs/acre broadcast.
