Description

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.
