Organic CultivationMax CC8 Cover Crop Mix
COVER CROP INTO CORN
Shade-tolerant blend of organic cover crop species formulated for seeding at last cultivation in corn (V5-V6 stage).
- Small-seeded mix for companion planting with corn at last cultivation. Time with rain at seeding.
- Emerges and stays semi-dormant until corn dies back in fall. Will not impede growth or harvest of corn
- Not recommended for interseeding into soybeans as canopy is shady
- Best suited for medium to heavy textured soils; will likely struggle on sandy soils without irrigation
June 1 – July 5, V6/last cultivation will depend on planting date and corn maturity.
12-15 lbs/acre at ¼” to ½” deep. Drill or broadcast, but best drilled with specialized interseeding equipment.
$20.50 - $130.00
