Cover Crop, Barley Certified Organic

SOWING SEASON spring, fall

Select Number of LB

A multipurpose cereal grain, good as a cover crop for soil retention, biomass and weed suppression, as well as a possible grain crop for animal or human consumption. Very similar to winter cereal Rye, Winter Barley tends to have lower straw strength and more frost kill, which may work well for you if Rye tends to get too woody. Needs slightly higher temps to germ than rye, possibility of more volunteering post harvest, and more susceptible to lodging and flood damage. Plant 125-150 lbs/acre, more if weed suppression is your goal or it is getting late in the season.
