Cichorium intybus Perennial warm season cover crop.

  • Application Rate: 4-5 lb/acre or in a mix of grasses and/or legumes at 1-2 lb/acre
  • Inoculant: NA
  • Germination: 7-10 Days
  • Plant Height: 2'
  • Days to Maturity: 70-75 Days
  • Uses: 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.
  • Facts to Note: When managed properly, Chicory produces leafy growth which is higher in nutritive and mineral content than alfalfa and other cool season grasses. 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.

Reviews

Excellent quick cover in my backyard

Grows quickly, lots of biomass for composting, does well in my clay soil (Novato, CA). I trim it every few weeks, and it has kept producing new leaves during all seasons for nearly a year. It grows well in full sun and dappled shady area. It looks pretty too!
