Triticum X Secale Cool season cover crop. Exciting cereal grain variety offers many benefits, especially in orchards and vineyards. Creates a tremendous amount of organic matter due to its massive root system and its enormous amount of top growth. Low growing (6"-12") until late spring to early summer, when it can reach 5'. Yields more organic matter than even Merced Rye or Barley. Trios is a good variety for forage production in the Pacific Northwest. Because of its aggressive root system, Trios promotes water penetration and erosion control during the rainy season. Slower and lower growing in winter than other triticale varieties. Mow it in spring to a height of 3" and it will continue to regrow. Use this crop to take up excess nitrogen. Seed at 60-80 lb/acre or 2-4 lb/1000 sq ft. (No inoculant required)
