Annual Cover Crop Pollinator Mix with Legumes

This mix provides quality bee forage in a short-term rotation with commodity or cash crops. It serves as both a soil improvement cover crop and a beneficial pollinator mix because of the species selected and legume additions.

Planting rate: 15-25 lbs/acre depending on timing and planting application

  • Oats can be added as a carrier to aid in application and overall stand establishment

This mix provides quality bee forage in a short-term rotation with commodity or cash crops. It serves as both a soil improvement cover crop and a beneficial pollinator mix because of the species selected and legume additions. This mix can be planted late in the season as a winter cover that can provide flowers for bees in the spring or as a late spring/early summer planted cover that blooms mid-to-late summer. The results of this crop planted later in the summer or early fall will be largely dependent on weather conditions (frost, winter temperatures, etc.). The ideal planting window would be early enough to maximize bee forage and bloom time.
