SummerMax CC6 Cover Crop Mix


Buckwheat 30% + Cowpeas  30% + Sorghum/Sudangrass 10% + Proso Millet 15% + Sunn Hemp 10% + Sunflowers 5%

Vigorous growing warm-season cover crop mix of summer annual grasses, broadleaves, and legumes blended for maximum summer growth, weed suppression, and soil building.

  • Ideal for summer fallow soil building, prevent-plant situations, or as a diverse grazing/forage mixture
  • Competes with any weed and puts on tremendous growth and biomass
  • Provides good summer grazing/forage
  • Suitable for all soil types & field situations

Seeding: 40-50 lbs. /acre at 1⁄2 in. deep. Drill for best results.
