Establishes easily and grows very quickly. In gardens or row crop rotation, it produces plenty of top growth and a complimentary amount of root growth to incorporate as green manure. Can produce up to 200 lb per acre of nitrogen and 3 tons per acre of dry matter. Sown in early May and provided with adequate water, can be cut twice for a nitrogen rich mulch or protein rich hay and later plowed in as green manure. Perfect for rejuvenating worn out soils. Plant early Spring: April-May. Planting rate: 1/2 lb per 1000 sq ft; 15-20 lb per acre.
