Corn Interseeding Mix (for V3-V6 stage)

Description

Adding diversity in a corn and soybean rotation is often difficult due to the short season left after harvest. To help with this, many producers are considering interseeding their corn at V3-V5 stage. At this stage, the corn gets the head start it needs but still allows light to bring up the cover crop before the canopy closes. This corn interseeding blend introduces all four functional groups - legumes, grasses, brassicas, and broadleaves - to add diversity to the soil. With more root exudates, beneficial insect attraction, and nutrient cycling, this blend helps build soil alongside the corn. Plus, after corn harvest, the already established species can continue to grow with the newfound sunlight. The green material also boosts nutritional values for grazing stalks. 

Green Cover Seed was not able to source these seeds from organic production.  We certify that to the best of our knowledge these seeds are non-GMO and not treated with pesticides and that all coatings and inoculants are manufactured to organic standard

This product is pre-inoculated with Elevate'd Fungi and Rhizo-Fixer Plus, to increase the biological activity in your soil. 
  • Elevate'd Fungi is a seed applied inoculant derived from natural products designed to stimulate seed germination, increase root and biological biomass in the soil, and improve soil structure. OMRI status has been applied for and is pending. 
  • Rhizo-Fixer Plus Inoculant contains multiple families of nitrogen-fixing rhizobia bacteria plus Azospirillum Brasiliense (free living N fixer) and two phosphorus-solubilizing bacteria, Pantoea Eucalypti and Pseudomonas Baetica.
