This is a wonderful soil builder. Each package combines two types of cover crop seeds in one package. The field peas add nitrogen to the soil and the oats hold the nitrogen, provide organic matter, and suppress weeds. As a fall cover crop, cut it in late fall and leave the roots to hold the soil over the winter. The clippings will lay on top of the ground as winter mulch. Then turn it all in the following spring. A great mix to use when preparing new planting beds in the fall for spring planting.
