Description

Green Up Mix

 

Green Up Mix is similar in function to Green Spring but with five species for increased diversity and better adaptability to variable soils.

 

  • Seeding rate of 65-105 LBS per acre
  • Designed to be planted in Spring to produce early hay or pasture
  • Can remain undisturbed to convert spring rain into a water-saving mulch
  • In areas with more abundant rain, it can precede soybeans or sorghum
  • In areas with less rain use prior to wheat and is should be terminated by mid-June to allow soil profile recharge

 

Benefits of Cover Crops

  • Nitrogen Fixing: To generate nitrogen credits beneficial for the next primary crop.
  • Nutrient Scavenging: To consume and temporarily sequester (tie-up) nitrogen or to reclaim unreachable reservoirs of nutrients.
  • Mulching and Organic Matter: To improve soil health (moisture retention and water holding capacity) as well as to reduce soil erosion.
  • Soil conditioning: To reduce soil compaction, fracture hard-pan, and generally improve soil structure.
  • Soil Pest Management: To suppress nematodes and disrupt pest cycles.
  • Upland Birds: Creates brood rearing cover when planted in the spring through late summer.
