Spring Oats/Peas (70/30)

    Description

    This mix of oats and peas is a great option for anyone looking for quick ground cover, spring hay production, or even grazing. Oats are known for their quick establishment helping provide immediate ground cover for erosion prevention. Spring peas will grow well right alongside the oats, providing nitrogen fixation and a deep taproot system. This combo is 70% oats and 30% peas. This mix will also build a high carbon crop for ground cover later in the year if used for weed control.

    This product is pre-inoculated with GreenMerge and Rhizo-Fixer Plus, to increase the biological activity in your soil. 
    • GreenMerge 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. 
    • Bolster L Green 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. 
    Note these inoculants are NOT currently OMRI approved, however many of our certified organic customers have received approval to use these products. Please contact your certifier and refer to these documents before using this product on organic certified land.
