Organic Hairy Vetch (Northern Origin)

(1 customer review)
  • Fast growing; best fall-planted for N fixation
  • Viny plant type with exceptional biomass
  • Improves soil structure, scavenges P, and competes against early season weeds
  • Seed in mid to late August in Upper Midwest; plant with companion (rye, oats, etc.) for overwintering
  • Produces hard seed; control plant before seed set. Do not seed into small grains if harvesting for marketable grain: seed is difficult to separate

great seed

We have been buying this Organic Hairy Vetch from Albert Lea for many years for use on our organic farm. We are always very happy with the quality of the seed.
