Maybe “B&B” conjures images of a restful weekend with late-morning French toast on a sunny porch, or maybe you’re a devotee of the fine digestif blend of Bénédictine and brandy. Well, add our cover crop blend to your assortment of B&B pleasures. Here, the Bs stand for buckwheat (40% of mix) and BMR sorghum/sudangrass (40% of mix), plus we threw in enough Sunn Hemp (20% of mix) to fix a little nitrogen (but not enough to ruin the alliteration).
We’ve reformulated our popular cover crop blend to reliably winter-kill. A first-rate smother crop and biomass builder. Perfect for areas where a cash crop has failed or weeds have taken over. Loves heat.
Plant in June or July and mow when the buckwheat is in full flower. Till after the residue has broken down some if you want to plant a late-season crop, or mow periodically through the fall. The stubble will die back over the winter and you will enjoy weed-free high-tilth soil next spring. Availability of BMR sorghum/sudangrass has been spotty; we may substitute Japanese Millet at our discretion. Plant at 75#/acre or 2#/1000 sq ft. ②
