Cichorium intybus Perennial warm season cover crop. Herb suited to well or moderately drained soils with medium to high fertility levels and a pH of 5.5 or greater. Long taproot penetrates subsoils which makes it drought tolerant and allows it to make minerals more available to livestock. Rich in potassium, sulfur, calcium, zinc, sodium, manganese and iron. When managed properly, Chicory produces leafy growth which is higher in nutritive and mineral content than alfalfa and other cool season grasses. (No inoculant needed.) Protein levels range between 10%-32%, depending on plant maturity. Root can also be used for a coffee substitute! Used mainly in mixes with other pasture or cover crop seeds. Grows to 2'. Seed at 4-5 lb/acre or in a mix of grasses and/or legumes at 1-2 lb/acre.
