Rye Arrival

Posted: 20th August 2018

 

Our annual supply of rye is due to arrive at the end of the week and a third of it has already been sold in forward orders.

We take delivery of rye just once a year and there’s always a high demand as it’s a firm favourite with customers for use as an overwinter green manure or cover crop. However demand is even greater this year after the harsh winter, dry summer and resultant shortage of winter forage, since rye grows later in the autumn/winter and earlier in the spring than any other forage crop, providing grazing from February onwards.

Most farmers prefer to get it into the ground by mid September to maximise yield but since it’s going to be flying out of our warehouse so fast, we’d advise you to contact us as soon as you can if you’d like some.
