$3.99$79.99

NEW! Winter Rye Seed. Organic Aroostook. Winter Rye has earned fame as the hardiest winter grain. ‘Aroostook’ variety was named after Aroostook County in Northern Maine where Wood Prairie Family Farm is located. ‘Aroostook’ is a rarely available Winter Rye which we grow ourselves, renowned for its ability to grow at low temperatures late into the Fall and early in the Spring. In many trials ‘Aroostook’ has proven to be the earliest maturing Winter Rye. This makes ‘Aroostook’ especially valuable for organic no-till planting of warm-season crops such as corn or squash, after land has been prepared with the use of a crop roller. Grows to 5 foot height. May be planted anytime for a cover crop. To harvest as a grain crop, plant in August or September and harvest the following Summer. It begins growing in Spring while we still have patches of snow in our fields. Seed at 4-6 lbs/1000 sq. ft. or 110lbs./acre. 17,000 seeds/lb. Pkt plants 12 sq. ft
