Peaceful Valley Orchard Cover Crop Mix — enhance soil health and promote growth for trees.

Faba Beans and Field Peas, both leguminous cover crops, play a crucial role in supporting trees' growth. These cover crops fix atmospheric nitrogen, enriching the soil with this essential nutrient. As trees are heavy nitrogen consumers, incorporating these legumes helps meet their nitrogen demands naturally, promoting healthier and more vigorous growth.

Common Vetch further enhances the soil by increasing organic matter content. As it decomposes, it adds valuable nutrients to the soil, supporting trees' nutrient uptake and overall health.

2700 Triticale, a hybrid of wheat and rye, contributes to the mix's benefits by providing excellent weed suppression. By reducing weed competition, trees can allocate more energy and resources towards growth and development.

Also includes Fall Ryegrain, Radish, and Yellow Mustard.
