A note about cover crop...

If you are seeding on bare soil or slope, we recommend including a temporary cover crop at a rate of 15 lbs. per acre, $3 per lb.


If you have large acreage, we suggest finding cover crop locally as they are commonly available and are heavy, adding substantially to your shipping cost with us.
