Product Details

Sow summer oats in late summer or undersow between corn and bean rows at 3-4 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. Winter will kill these plants at about 15°F, leaving thick roots to hold the soil and mats of straw. 1 1/2 lbs. seeds 375-500 sq. ft.

  • Zones: 3 - 9 annual
  • Spacing: 1 1/2 lbs per 375 - 500 sq ft
  • Depth: 1/4 to 1/2 inch
  • Sun/Shade: Full Sun
  • Soil Preference: Till soil so that after seed is sown, it can be raked into the top 1/4 inch of finely worked soil. (A leaf rake works better for this purpose than a garden rake, but either will do.) Watering will hasten germination.
  • Seed Counts: 1.5 #
