Winter Cover Cereal Rye Grain
Our cover crop seed is weed free of Bastard Cabbage. Cereal Rye Grain (Secale cereale) is entirely different than rye grass! We offer this non-invasive, annual rye grain based on its ability to quickly germinate in coldest of temperatures. Cereal Rye Grain develops extensive fibrous root systems, holding your topsoil from eroding. For bare ground, it is economical to plant grain thick. Mow and till or plow down in Feb or March. This adds natural organic matter and begins your soil prep for permanent natives.
Another technique is to use Cereal Rye Grain as a nurse crop. Use a lighter seeding rate planted with permanent native seeds. The grain's root systems will hold soil down until natives can get established. Consider using other erosion control techniques such as Erosion Control Blankets especially on slopes.
Quality Tools Made in USA
Start with heavy duty tools made in the USA - 100% organic control of alien species such as KR Bluestem (from Asia), Bastard Cabbage or Musk Thistle (from Europe, Asia). Aliens compete fiercely for available sunlight and water. Native American Seed encourages the removal and control on all non-native species for the benefit of our vanishing eco-systems. A good resource to learn more about alien species is Texas Invasives Database.
