Winter rye, also referred to as cereal rye, is a very hardy and vigorous small grain planted in the fall. Winter rye is an excellent selection for cover cropping, forage, or in wildlife plantings. It is widely adapted across the United States and can be grown under a broad range of conditions. With its quick germination, ground cover, and ability to be planted much later than other species, winter rye is a favorite among cover croppers and forage producers. It is frequently planted in the fall for forage harvest the following spring. Because winter rye is cold hardy, its foliage remains green well into early winter and serves as a great deer food plot attractant.

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS: Plant in well to moderately well drained soils of 5.8 to 7.5 PH. Plant at a rate of 50 to 100lbs. per acre 1″-2″ deep.
