Oats Cover Crops

Avena sativa.  Oats are not particularly cold hardy, so a summer planted crop will die back, holding the soil in place, and providing ample carbon-rich organic matter to till under before planting spring vegetables. 

  • Excellent erosion control
  • Adds abundant carbon to soil
  • Improves soil tilth 
  • Fast growth & easy tiling 
  • Open-pollinated seeds
