Cover Crop Solutions with cover crop seed

A Four-Way Mix - Excellent for Forage Production, Grazing, and Fall Cover Crop

In this 12 Gauge Forage Mix™, FGA Winter Forage Triticale provides the protein and the bulk of the forage dry matter.  Buckshot™ Annual ryegrass provides additional energy.  Protein levels and nutrient density are turbocharged by the presence of FGA Crimson Clover and Bull™ Radish.

  • FGA Winter Forage Triticale – High-quality winter hardy forage triticale with high protein levels.

  • Buckshot Annual Ryegrass – High-energy grass with a dense fibrous roots to take up left over nutrients.

  • FGA Crimson Clover – Cool season legume that fixes nitrogen and increases protein levels.

  • Bull Radish – Improves soil quality and brings minerals to the surface for the forage grasses to utilize in the spring; provides rapid establishment in the fall for earlier grazing opportunity.

Forage Production

Seeding rate

  • Drilled (7.5” rows): 80–120 lbs./acre (can be planted as high as 150 lbs.)

  • Seeding depth:       1”

Planting window:  At least 4 weeks before first killing frost

 

Fall Fertility requirements: A small amount of nitrogen or manure is recommended. If planted following corn silage, little to no fertility may be required.  There is a direct correlation to increased top growth when added nutrients are applied at time of planting; however, it is usually not required.

Spring Fertility requirements:  Spring application of 30-50 lbs. per acre of nitrogen should be applied after dormancy.

Cover Crop / Grazing

Seeding Rates

  • Drilled:          40-50 lbs./acre

  • Broadcast:     50-60 lbs./acre

Planting window for cover crop and spring grazing: At least 2 weeks before first killing frost.

Planting window for fall grazing: At least 6 weeks before first killing frost.
