FL 401 Winter Rye Grain Seed - 50 Lbs.
Florida 401 Winter Grain Rye is used for winter grassing, windbreaks, erosion control, and weed suppression. It is a fast-establishing crop, and can produce feed in as little as two weeks for wildlife such as deer, turkey, and rabbits. FL 401 Rye can grow up to 4-5 feet tall, making it a good choice for planting between rows of crops such as tomatoes to form a wind barrier. It also stabilizes excess soil and manure nitrogen.
Planting information: Florida 401 Rye should be planted in cool weather on plowed ground, at a rate of 50-100 pounds per acre (broadcast) or 60-75 pounds per acre (drilled) for winter forage.
