Common Oats- Organic Seed
$2.00 per pound
Planting time and rate:
Common oats should be planted no later than the end of September. Earlier fall planting (as early as late August) will provide optimal benefit from fall growth. Seed at 100–200#/acre, 2.5–5#/1000 sq ft. Apply at higher end of rate range for later planting.
Common Oats will not survive winters in New England, so there is no need to worry about how to terminate them in the spring.
Can be grown with our crimson clover , with reduced seeding rate for optimal co-establishment. Only clover will come back in the spring and need to be terminated.
