Use winter wheat to help with 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.
We recommend seeding this for late summer installations as a cover crop. Use at 50 to 100 lbs. per acre.
