Sunn Hemp

Tall-growing summer annual legume, tolerates dryer conditions, high biomass producer, and good smother crop. Use as a green manure/cover crop to provide both organic matter and nitrogen during the period between summer and winter cash crops. Produces significant biomass in 6-7 weeks. High lignin content; after 3 to 4 weeks of growth it gets too woody for forage use. Good in mixes to add varying heights to the cover, but keep seeding rate low.

Recommended seeding rate: 20-40 lbs/A.

Inoculate with peanut inoculant for best growth and nitrogen fixation.
