A true soil building cover crop mix, HOMESTEAD helps restore soil health following challenging conditions like extended drought or flood. Tillage Sunn™ is a tropical warm weather legume that thrives in dry conditions and poor soil. Sorghum-Sudangrass has a tall growth habit and adds to the biomass production. The lower growing Tillage Radish® is shaded by the two taller species during the summer and then springs to life at the first sign of cooler weather, soaking up the significant amounts of N produced by Sunn Hemp. The Tillage Radish® then stores the N over winter, releasing it in the spring when newly planted cash crops need it most.
Seeding rate is 12 lbs/acre precision planted or 15 lbs/acre drilled.
