We developed this mix especially for vegetable rotations and general cool-weather cover cropping. Soil Builder is not filled with cheap grasses like other mixes. Contains the highest-yielding winter-hardy legumes with cayuse oats added to stabilize the soil, and to nurse and scaffold the vetches.

  • Application Rate: 3-5 lb/1000 sq ft, or 70-120 lb/acre at a depth of 3/4 to 1 in
  • Inoculant: Pea Vetch or Garden Combination Inoculant
  • Germination: 5-10 Days
  • Plant Height: 4 - 6'
  • Uses: Extraordinary yields of Nitrogen (up to 290 lb/acre) and organic matter (up to 49 tons/acre). Chokes out weeds and provides excellent habitat for beneficial insects.
  • Facts to Note: Seed in September or October. In coastal or cool summer zones, Soil Builder can be spring-planted.

Essential!

I've used this as a winter cover crop (in both Las Vegas, NV & Charlotte, NC) on vegetable beds in rotation since 1999. It's plenty cold hardy under Quick Hoops in Zone 7. I love it!
