Grain Crop Oats Common

Grain Crop Oats Common Non-GMO, Organic One Ounce Package

$4.96

Grain Crop Oats Common Non-GMO, Organic One Pound Package

$19.96

Standard choice with multiple uses. Early maturing and good standing with very high yields. A good choice for under seeding with a legume. Oats are a quick-growing green manure. For winter cover, sow by early Sept. in the North, slightly later farther south; the heavy stubble will prevent erosion and oats will not regrow in the spring like winter rye. For grain production, sow seeds in early spring for a late summer harvest. Organically grown.  Harvest in mid to late summer.


Grain Crop Oats Hulless

Grain Crop Oats Hulless Non-GMO, Heirloom, Organic One Ounce Package

$4.96

Oats Hulless Grain Non-GMO, Heirloom, Organic One Pound Package

$19.96

Sow Hulless Oats in early spring as soon as the ground can be worked. Harvest in mid- to late summer, thresh, and winnow. Lacks the indigestible husk of common oats. Grind into oat flour or crack in a grain mill to make oatmeal. Oatstraw, the green leafy stems, can be harvested for tea.  For a winter cover crop, sow in late summer; in cold areas, oats will get winter-killed when temperatures drop below 10°F, and the crop residue is then easy to work under for planting early spring crops like peas and potatoes. Organically grown. Harvest in mid to late summer. 


Winter Rye Grain

Winter Rye Grain Non-GMO, Heirloom, Organic One Ounce Package

$4.96

Grain Crop Winter Rye Non-GMO, Heirloom, Organic One Pound Package

$19.96

Rye cover crop is great for controlling erosion, adding organic matter, enhancing soil life, and suppressing weeds. Its extensive root system makes it among the best green manures for improving soil structure. It is an excellent soil renovator and pioneer crop for new fields.  Rye is very good at releasing phosphorus and potassium. It also stabilizes excess soil and manure nitrogen. Rye and vetch together are one of the preferred cover crops for no-till tomato planting.  Rye is also good for animal grazing; it's highly palatable and of high nutritional quality, and comes back from grazing and grows again. Rapid establishment and growth together with weed suppression make rye an excellent choice for certified organic growers.


Grain Crop Yellow Field Peas

Grain Crop Yellow Field Peas Non-GMO, Open Pollinated, Organic, One Ounce Package

$9.96

Grain Crop Yellow Field Peas Non-GMO, Open Pollinated, Organic, One Pound Package

$19.96

A great grain crop or forage mixture component. Yellow peas are a great non-GMO protein source and are becoming more prevalent in feed rations with protein percentages ranging from 21–25. They contain high levels of carbohydrates, are low in fiber, and contain 86–87% total digestible nutrients, making them an excellent livestock feed. Harvest for grain at 16–18% moisture or when the seeds are hardened and fully mature. Organically grown.  Sow August 1st thru November 15th as a winter cover crop.
