If you are considering planting a cover crop, consider KB Seed Solutions annual ryegrass. KB Royal annual ryegrass or KB Supreme annual ryegrass will improve the health and nutrient value of your soil. Deep-rooting ryegrass scavenges and holds nitrogen for future crops, which means bigger profits. Even during dry seasons, KB annual ryegrass promotes larger yields due to the deep-rooting that creates channels for crop roots to easily follow. KB Seed Solutions does more than provide you with seed. Our leadership and knowledge will help you integrate cover crops into your operation.
GS3 Quality Seed and our premium dealers should be your first choice for cover-crop products that provide you with the value and performance you need. Our proven NitroRadish will benefit your soils with its ability to break up hardpans, increase organic matter, scavenge nutrients and improve yields. Our “TNT” Vetch variety has been selected for winter hardiness and its ability to produce large amounts of nitrogen. Availability is limited, so check our website for a dealer near you.
Doing More With Less. This concept isn’t news to you, you’re expected to produce more, work harder, know more, spend more, and conserve more — while your available resources are limited (time/money). Wouldn’t it be nice if just once, things worked in your favor? Find out how years of research and testing have resulted in a cover crop that does much more — nutrient management, weed suppression, aeration, water filtration, etc., while using less seed and a lower price per acre than other traditional products with limited benefits. A little bit can go a long way!
