Product Guide

Planting

  • Planting Time: Early Summer OR Late Summer/Early Fall
  • Aerial/Broadcast Seeding Rate: 15 lbs/acre
  • All species are small-seeded and can germinate on the soil surface without incorporation.

*Be aware of any pre-emergence herbicide applied and its residual activity prior to cover crop planting to avoid emergence injury/failure.

Management

  • Interseeding into corn should be done either early in the summer when corn is near the V4 growth stage – prior to the canopy, or later in the year when the corn has begun to senesce.
  • Interseeding into soybeans should only be done in the late summer or fall when leaf drop has begun.
  • The success of Hi-Fly depends on timing – plan your application of seed according to when there will be adequate sunlight reaching the ground to keep seedlings alive.
  • Following cash crop harvest, Hi-Fly can be grazed along with crop residue through the fall and winter with no nutritional concerns.
  • All species in the blend should winterkill, so termination is not necessary.
  • Very little residue will be gained from this blend, so there is no need to modify tillage plans.
