If you’re growing maize, drilling grass into a standing maize crop can bring multiple benefits and now is the perfect time to sow Italian ryegrass with CoverCoat. Broadcasting Italian ryegrass into standing maize as a covercrop protects the soil, preventing soil erosion and improving compaction. It also provides winter cover and forage in spring and since the maize is well ahead now, there’s no danger of the grass competing with it. The beauty of CoverCoated Italian ryegrass is that it is easy to broadcast into a standing crop and the CoverCoat also helps the seeds to germinate without the need for rolling and seedbed preparation. It’s low cost, and will last for up two years, but can equally be used just for a short term winter cover.
