Mixture Components

Ryegrass

Produces a massive, fibrous root system, tolerates traffic and provides quality yield in spring through early summer.

Crimson clover

Fixes nitrogen and is high in crude protein in early to mid-spring.

Daikon radish

Fights soil compaction and mines for nutrients deep in the soil.

Barkant turnip

A grazing tolerant, bulbous brassica that brings together the benefits of a taproot with better regrowth.

Planting Instructions

While broadcasting is recommended, the seeds still need contact with the soil. Remove as much of the previous crop residue as possible. Consider dragging before (to remove residue) and after seeding.
