 Wrens Abruzzi Winter Rye Grain Seed (Secale cereale) 


Certified Seed

Developed 1953 in GA as an early winter rye with superior performance in the SE piedmont and coastal plains.

A selection of the much older Abruzzi rye.

  • Rye cover crop is great for controlling erosion, adding organic matter, enhancing soil life, and suppressing weeds.
  • Its extensive root system makes it among the best green manures for improving soil structure. It is an excellent soil renovator and pioneer crop for new fields.
  • Rye is very good at releasing phosphorus and potassium. It also stabilizes excess soil and manure nitrogen.
  • Rye and vetch together are one of the preferred cover crops for no-till tomato planting.
  • Rye is also good for animal grazing; it's highly palatable and of high nutritional quality, and comes back from grazing and grows again.

Wren's Abruzzi performs better in the warm winters of the southeast than other available varieties of rye. Rapid establishment and growth, together with weed suppression, make Wren's Abruzzi an excellent choice for certified organic growers.

Sow August 1 to November 15 as a winter cover crop.

 Plant at 4-6 lbs per 1000 sq ft, or 60-112 lbs per acre. Pkt. (1/2 lb)
