Simple-N-Swift provides a fast-establishing cover crop with a nitrogen-fixing component that is versatile, low-maintenance, and economical. This mix contains enough rye seed to gain erosion control, but not so much that the crimson clover is prevented from thriving. The clover provides a nitrogen boost to the rye and, if used as a green manure, the residue from both crops will add to soil organic matter, especially when used over multiple seasons. This mix will allow for both fall and spring emergency forage harvest; the fall harvest will be a mix of clover and winter rye forage and the spring harvest will be rye forage hay.
