Increases nitrogen and organic matter

Days to Maturity: 50 to 70 to termination

Non-GMO and no-till, Oats & Pea Cover Crop Seed Mix is an organic, affordable, and sustainable way to rejuvenate garden soil, including in container gardens and raised beds. This blend of annual varieties work in tandem to restore nutrients, suppress weeds, control erosion, and improve tilth and soil structure.

A dynamic duo, peas are nitrogen fixers that put nitrogen back into the soil, and oats act as support stock for the peas to climb and, once decomposed, become organic matter, or "green manure," which increases nutrients in the soil—reducing the need for fertilizers—and improves nutrient delivery as well as moisture retention and drainage.

Plant in spring for the highest biomass—mow, cut, or flatten before plants go to seed, and allow plant matter to decompose back into the ground. Plant in summer or fall to winter-kill following your main crops.

Oats & Pea Cover Crop Seed Mix Includes:

Dun Peas (Pisum sativum subsp. arvense) 70%
Oats (Avena sativa) 30%

1/4 lb covers approximately 50 square feet
