Fall Rye

Secale cereale, introduced

  •  If planted in early August, fall rye can be available as a fall forage and as a feed source again in spring
  • Very cold tolerant
  • Extensive fibrous root system
  • Introduced to North America but widely adapted to all areas of crop production
  • Favours lighter, low-pH soils
  • Cover crops can be added to custom blends to help reduce soil erosion by wind and water and to help suppress weed populations while the native species are establishing
  • Cover crops can also aid in extending the grazing period
  • Can be added to custom seed blends at 5-10% of total blend
