Grows fast and creates a huge
amount of humus. Sow 2 lbs. per 1,000
Spacing: 2 lbs per 1000 sq. ft.
Comments: Excellent catch crop after an early harvest. This cabbage relative sprouts and grows fast, produces large, nitrogen-rich leaves which crowd out weeds. Deep roots loosen tough clay soil. Matures in 8 to 10 weeks; large vegetative mass decays fast, makes a wealth of humus when turned under. Cover crops should be turned under several weeks before the area is planted with crops in order to allow sufficient decomposition.
