Excellent nitrogen fixation—over 100 #/ acre. Best planted with rye; the rye supports vetch vines in the spring and holds the soil over the winter better than the tap-rooted vetch. (See above, Vetch/Rye Mix.) Tolerates acidic soils and low fertility, but not poor drainage. Use a flail mower in fall and plow under in spring before it becomes unmanageable. Seed at 20-40#/acre, 1#/1000 sq. ft.
