Summer Solar


A diverse legume-forb cover crop mix of aggressively growing summer annuals, with possible dual use as a wildlife food plot. The mix includes four very different components—buckwheat, cowpeas, sunflower, and sunn hemp. These species work together to perform several functions during their brief growth period:

  • Nitrogen fixation and recycling
  • Organic phosphorus liberation and recycling
  • Soil organic matter building/carbon sequestration
  • Other nutrient cycling and soil health building
  • Summer pollinator and beneficial insect attraction
  • Summer weed smother crop
  • Disease and nematode break crop
