Winter Rye is a very hardy and vigorous small grain crop when planted in the fall. Use in combination with other fall attractants, as deer will eat the young growth in late fall. These crops will appear and start to grow very early in the spring providing essential food for wildlife at a critical time of year.

Protein Rye forage provides a good protein and moderate fiber levels. Rye grain tends to be less palatable than other grain crops.
Nutrition Rye is the fastest growing and produces the highest tonnage of the winter grain crops. It will be about 10 days ahead of wheat and 20-30 days ahead of oats and barley. Fiber levels are slightly higher but higher forage yields make up for lower digestibility. Rye grains have average nutrition, and are not very palatable.
Primary Usage Forage, grain, and straw
How to Plant

Winter Rye can be installed with drill, no-till drill, hand seeder or broadcast spreader. Seeds need to be covered with soil and pressed or packed to ensure seed to soil contact.
