Easy to grow. A non-hybrid winter rye for grain or cover cropping. Plants have huge root systems that prevent erosion and add all-important carbon to the soil fast. Great way of preserving nutrients that would otherwise wash away before spring planting. 6 ft tall plants make wonderful straw for mulching, composting, animal bedding, etc. Chickens like the grain as well. Threshes easily without equipment. 800 seeds. Covers 100 sq ft.
