Rapid growth and ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen makes sunn hemp an attractive cover crop for producers wishing to provide additional N, increase surface residue, suppress fallow period weed growth and improve soil health. Provides the benefits of a cover crop such as erosion control, soil improvement, plus resistance to root- knot nematode and can produce 120- 140 pounds of nitrogen in southern climates in 60-90 days. This makes it an ideal cover crop to follow wheat harvest or after short-season summer crops harvested in August or early September. Recommended 15 lbs. per acre.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
