Planted a half acre plot and much to my amazement it has come up really thick. I'm watering the heck out of it though. Question, will it survive through winter and come back next spring? Should I plant oats this fall and just re-seed alfalfa next spring? Anyone ever plant it?
If it makes the summer it will make the winter. Watch for crows...if you get a bunch of crows better get going with your molasses based pesticide
, seriously the crows are your friends.
We rotate every fourth year. Iíve over seeded every other but I think ground does better with a break at least on ground thatís been farmed for decades. But then again you arenít farming for ceral grains either.
Donít drill it. Drop seeder works best old brilliant etc
I planted some south of you around Edna hill and it made to July. Deer, drought and worms. Done. I also tried lab labs and had same result. Iron clay peas worked better.
