Well, I stole some information from another website ....... but I think it's good information. Shows the acceptable ph things will grow at, as well as minimum soil temperatures needed for germination.

This chart gives us seeding depths and seeding rates ...... remember these numbers are for establishing a crop (or cover crop), by themselves, not necessarily in a mix.

When you have small plots, that only add up to a small % of the overall property, I want to try to maximize how many lbs/acre of plant life I can successfully grow. For fall, the basics are wheat and crimson clover, but I always add Arrowleaf, which helps extend the "feeding season" out till I work it all up in April and plant my cowpeas & soybeans.

Oats are good too, however, I didn't plant any last year and I think they would've frozen out in my area with all the extended cold temps we had. Wheat wasn't fazed by it.

Wonderful stuff dat!
Thanks for sharing this info. It might be nice to get this stuff in a sticky note. Any chance we can sweet talk the mod into doing that?
 
Agree with that George. If we could get our club leaders to realize the value of tilling under the crimson oats and wheat etc in April for added green manure to the soil and plant the cow peas and soybeans in the summer we would be doing great. They always come back with . We been doing it this way for 20 years it works just fine . They let there plots grow up to waist high don't lime. Just go in a Bushhog it to darn near dirt leave the grass clumps run a plow over it and throw some seed out and lightly disk it in a call it done. They have no idea how much better they would be doing but doing like y'all do and I and others there know to do. Just want listen so it's either the few of us do it our way and let them do there own thing.
