COVER CROP INTO CORN

Organic Annual Rye 40% + Organic Radish 20% + Organic Medium Red Clover 20% + Organic Alsike Clover 15% + Organic Hardy Alfalfa 5%

Shade-tolerant blend of organic cover crop species formulated for seeding at last cultivation in corn (~V6 stage).

  • Excellent small seeded mix for companion planting with corn at last cultivation (~June)
  • With adequate moisture, will emerge and stay semi-dormant until corn crop starts dying back in fall. Will not impede growth or harvest of corn.
  • Not recommended for interseeding into soybeans as soybean canopy is too shady
  • Adapted to many soil types but best suited for medium to heavy textured soils; will likely struggle on sandy soils without irrigation

Planting Date: June 1 – July 5th, V6/last cultivation will depend on planting date and corn maturity.

Seeding: 12-15 lbs. /acre at 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 in. deep. Drill or broadcast. Best success when timed with a rain at seeding and specialized interseeding equipment is used (vs. broadcasting).
