Annual Rye makes a good nurse crop and thrives in poor soils and full sun. Due to its fast germination it is exceptionally useful on slopes where it helps reduce erosion and quickly stabilize the area while longer term species are getting established. When using annual rye as a nurse crop do not exceed the recommended application rate as the annual rye can actually outcompete the target species if it is applied at too heavy a rate. It can also be used where quick seasonal cover is required such as on long term construction and development sites. The 500g package covers 20 sq. m. (215 sq. ft.).

400 seed/gram Mix annual rye with any perennial, wildflower or native seed blend to provide quick germination and help reduce weed seed germination, stop soil from blowing away and reduce erosion damage from water run-off. Do not over apply annual rye when using it as a nurse crop. Due to its aggressive growth, annual rye can actually outcompete the very species that you want to establish.
