Cover Crop - Native Rye Mix

  • Sale
  • Regular price $ 22.00


The mix consists of two native Rye grasses that germinate and grow quickly. Use it to help with the erosion of the soil and your precious seed.  Also, use this cover crop to help compete against weeds and as an indicator crop to help determine if your seeding was successful. It also can be used as a carrier to help spread seed more evenly.

We recommend seeding this for spring and summer installations as a cover crop and anytime as a carrier.
