Description

SF 140 Multi-Purpose is a premium Soil First™ mixture of Hy Octane Winter Triticale, Soil First Radish, Vivant Brassica, Forage Collards, and Winter Peas.  SF 140 fits into several systems – after silage or small grain harvest.  It is a good option to seed on acres where leftover nutrients exist.

Planting window:  3-10 weeks before frost

Seeding rates:

  • Seed 35-40 lbs/acre alone with a drill (7.5″ spacing)

Termination:  Triticale can be controlled with traditional glyphosate rates prior to 12-18” growth. 2’ tall triticale should be controlled with roller or crimper. If mowing, wait until triticale begins to flower. Radish will terminate with multiple nights in the teens. If radish survive, glyphosate and 2,4-D offer an effective control method. Forage brassicas will typically winterkill with temperatures below 25° F and collards are winderhardy to -15° F. Forage brassica can be controlled with glyphosate and 2,4-D, however collards require other broadleaf herbicides, if not grazed out completely.
