Description

SF 175 Accuspread is a premium Soil First™ cover crop mix of Coated Coldsnap Annual Ryegrass, Coated Crimson Clover and Soil First Select Radish.  A traditional combination of species for breaking up compaction, sequestering leftover nutrients, and building soil structure.  SF 175 is a flexible mix to use in front of corn, soybeans and many other cash crops.  The annual ryegrass in SF 175 utilizes CrosseCoat™ Technology – aiding in ballistics, spread patterns and more consistent germination.

Planting window:  3-10 weeks before frost

Seeding rates:

  • Seed 20-25 lbs/acre alone with a drill (7.5″ spacing)
  • Broadcast/Aerial:  25-30 lbs/acre
  • For forage 25-30 lbs/acre

Seeding depth:  ¼” to ½″ deep

Comparable setting on drill chart:  Tall Fescue (reduce by 25%), Crested Wheat Grass (reduce by 15%), or Annual Ryegrass

Germination soil temperature:  45° F

DM tons/acre:  2-5

Considerations:  Any time annual ryegrass is used, spring management has to be a main priority. Keep ryegrass from going to seed at all costs. Annual ryegrass not terminated can have adverse effects on any subsequent grass crops. The use of ryegrass blends have given ryegrass a bad reputation – make sure it is a single, respected variety. Multiple maturities make control even more complex.

Benefits:  scale 1-5, 5=best

  • Compaction Alleviation      5
  • Weed suppression               4
  • Biomass production            4
  • Erosion control                    4
  • Disease/Pest control          4
  • Pollinator/Beneficials        3
  • P & K Cycling                       4
  • Ease of Establishment       4

Termination:  Radish will terminate with multiple nights in the teens. If radish overwinter, glyphosate and 2,4-D provide effective control. For annual ryegrass termination, using glyphosate by itself or with other grass killers can be used, but several key management criteria need met to ensure success.
