No-till vegetable transplanting. Tendrils form on the ends of the leaves. Moyer designed and built the first front-mounted TRI roller prototype in 2002 in conjunction with Pennsylvania farmer John Brubaker, whose land abuts the TRI property. But, if you roll it after it has flowered, it will dry up and die.”. Vicia acutifolia. Grain contamination also is likely if the vetch goes to seed before grain harvest. Residue from killed hairy vetch has a weak allelopathic effect, but it smothers early weeds mostly by shading the soil. Farmers and researchers are increasingly using a roller/crimper to kill hairy vetch and other cover crops (11). Residue with a C:N ratio of 25:1 or more tends to immobilize N. For more information, see How Much N?, and the rest of that section, Building Soil Fertility and Tilth with Cover Crops. Hairy vetch is more drought tolerant than other vetches. In Zone 7 areas of the Southeast, the fit is not quite as good, but substantial N from vetch is often available before corn planting. It can be adapted to fit a 4-row planter on 38-inch rows, and a 5- foot version for 2-row vegetable planters. Rye also increases the density of residue covering the vetch stubble to prevent regrowth. Forage Extension Specialist 2. Early weed suppression. Agricultural Research Center, outlines his approach: The hairy vetch mulch suppresses early season weeds. Completing harvest by mid- September allows the field to be immediately reseeded to hairy vetch. Common vetches are an annual pasture/forage/grain legume, extremely palatable at all growth stages, from early green shoots, as dry matter/hay or silage through to seedpods and seeds over summer. In no-till systems, killed hairy vetch creates a short-term but effective spring/summer mulch, especially for transplants. Hairy vetch ahead of no-till corn was also the preferred option for risk averse farmers in a three-year Maryland study that also included fallow and winter wheat ahead of the corn. Good with grains. When was the first name Vetch first recorded in the United States? available N/A by mid-May. Coastal dunes milk-vetch is an annual herb in the pea family (Fabaceae) and only occurs in California. Rotate crops to alleviate buildup of these pests (361). Once vetch reaches about 50% bloom, it is easily killed by any mechanical treatment. : The vetches and vetchlings are native to temperate areas in both hemispheres and their range even extends into mountainous parts of Africa. The British farmer's plant portfolio - specimens of the principal British grasses, forage plants and weeds - with full descriptions (1896) (14593262909).jpg 3,214 × 5,419; 1.49 MB Herbicides will kill vetch in three to 30 days, depending on the material used, rate, growth stage and weather conditions. Fertilization: Common vetch grows on a wide range of soils. Coastal dunes milk-vetch has small purple flowers clustered at the end of slender stems. In TRI trials, simultaneous rolling and no-till planting eliminated seven of the eight field passes usually necessary with conventional organic corn production, including plowing, discing, packing, planting, two rotary hoe passes and two cultivations. The mixture contained as much N or more than vetch alone (85, 86). Vetch seed is about the same size as wheat and barley kernels, making it hard and expensive to separate during seed cleaning (361). Type: winter annual or summer annual legume Roles: N source, weed suppressor, topsoil conditioner, reduce erosion Mix with: small grains, field peas, bell beans, crimson clover, buckwheat See charts, p. 66 to 72, for ranking and management summary. For More Information. Hairy vetch, especially an oats/hairy vetch mix, decreased surface ponding and soil crusting in loam and sandy loam soils. hairy vetch with 40-70 lb. Fast & Vast High Clover One - Two Year Ley; Fast & Vast One - Two Year Ley 70% ORGANIC; Westerwold and Vetch Mix - Six Month Ley; Westerwold and Vetch Mix - Six Month Ley - 70% ORGANIC; Rye/Vetch Over-Winter Mix; Rye/Vetch Over-Winter Mix 70% ORGANIC; Autumn Sown Two Year Legume Fallow For a more accurate estimate, see How Much N?. “If you try to roll a winter annual before it has flowered—before it has physiologically reproduced—the plant will try to stand up again and complete the job of reproduction, the most important stage of its life cycle. This internal change causes the grain residue to break down faster, while accumulating the same levels of N as it did in a monoculture (344). Many of the insects of forage legumes attack vetches, including the pea aphid, cutworms, fall armyworm, vetch bruchid, American grasshopper, lygus bugs, clover leafhopper, and potato leafhopper. Prior to settling on the TRI prototype, Moyer and Brubaker studied stalk choppers with nine rolling drums arranged in two parallel rows. Some Zone 5 Midwestern farmers with access to low-cost seed plant vetch after winter grain harvest in midsummer to produce whatever N it can until it winterkills or survives to regrow in spring. See Cover Crop Roller Design Holds Promise For No-Tillers. An Illinois farmer successfully no-tills hairy vetch in late August at 22 lb./A into closely mowed stands of fescue on former Conservation Reserve Program land (417).Using a herbicide to kill the fescue is cheaper than mowing, but it must be done about a month later when the grass is actively growing for the chemical to be effective. Widely […] Woollypod vetch is the earliest-maturing species of commercially available vetches, blooming about three weeks earlier than purple vetch (Williams et al., 1959). The vetch-corn system maintained its economic advantage when the cost of vetch was projected at maximum historic levels, fertilizer N price was decreased, and the herbicide cost to control future volunteer vetch was factored in (173). He kills the vetch when it is in its pre-bloom or bloom stage, nearing its peak N-accumulation capacity. Many are beneficial to crop production, (see below) but others are pests. Widely adapted and winter hardy through Hardiness Zone 4 and into Zone 3 (with snow cover), hairy vetch is a top N provider in temperate and subtropical regions. The roller crimps the stem of the hairy vetch every 7 inches, closing the plant’s vascular system and ensuring its demise. The 10-foot, 6-inch roller weighs 1,200 pounds empty and 2,000 pounds if filled with water. sometimes increase under hairy vetch. Vicia sepium or bush vetch is a plant species of the genus Vicia. The management challenge is that the mulch also lowers soil temperature, which may delay early season growth (361). Jeff Moyer and others at the Rodale Institute in Kutztown, Pa ., roll hairy vetch and other cover crops in late May or early June (at about 50% flower). Common vetch helps with the suppression of spring weeds and is a valuable cover crop … Nitrogen source. Common vetch (Vicia sativa L.) is a high‐quality alternative forage legume in rainfed areas of the Mediterranean basin. Hairy vetch is susceptible to root-knot nematodes and soybean cyst nematodes. The chopper’s rolling blades break over, crimp and cut crop stems at ground level, and handle thick residue of hairy vetch at 8 to 10 mph (169). Late overseeding into vegetables is possible, but remember that hairy vetch will not stand heavy traffic (361). Profit was higher, but less predictable, if 50 pounds of N were added to the vetch system (310). The test rollers were designed and contributed by The Rodale Institute (TRI), a Pennsylvania -based organization focused on organic agricultural research and education. Long stems arise from fibrous roots, and flowers are purple. The 'Madison Vetch' variety was developed in Nebraska, and is apparently cold tolerant. BELTSVILLE, MD.—Killed cover crop mulches can deliver multiple benefits for no-till vegetable crops (1, 2, 3, 4). Funding for the program comes from grants and contributions from the Natural Resources Conservation Service and private donors. Hairy vetch is the vetch species most commonly grown in Georgia. Moyer hopes to see plant breeders recognize the need to develop cover crop varieties with blooming characteristics that coincide with preferred crop planting windows. Check the mix carefully for weed seeds. If winterkill is possible in your area, planting vetch with a hardy grain such as rye ensures spring soil protection. Durability and effectiveness as a lightblocking mulch are greatest where the stalks are left whole. If the soil is even a little spongy, the cover crop will be pushed into the tire tracks and because the roller is running flat, it can’t crimp the depressed plant material. “If you were driving up a hill that might be fine, but we don’t need help pulling our tractors down the steep slopes we farm. How unique is the name Vetches? This design will allow as wide a roller system as a farmer needs,” Moyer says. Researchers attribute this to dual cover crop benefits: their ability to enhance the stability of soil aggregates (particles), and to decrease the likelihood that the aggregates will disintegrate in water (143). Establishment & Fieldwork Hairy vetch can be no-tilled, drilled into a prepared seedbed or broadcast. In southern Illinois, hairy vetch no-tilled into fescue provided 40 to 180 lb. Some weeds, particularly perennial or winter annual weeds, can still escape this mixture, and may require additional management (4). Keeping vetch residue on the surface favors weed suppression, moisture retention, and insect habitat, but may reduce N contribution. This can cause a weed problem, especially in winter grains. Two insects may reduce hairy vetch seed yield in heavy infestations: the vetch weevil or vetch bruchid. Adapted with permission from www.no-tillfarmer.com. As it begins to mature, toxins within hairy vetch can cause serious (and potentially fatal) animal health problems in grazing livestock. In some parts of California and the East in Zone 6, hairy vetch provides its maximum N by safe corn planting dates. Vetch also can be no-tilled into soybean or corn stubble (50, 80). Rye/hairy vetch mixtures mingle and moderate the effects of each crop. Hoorah! Duke (1981) also recounted briefly the history of hairy vetch breeding and seed production in the U.S. From refining his own research and on-farm tests in the mid-Atlantic region for several years, Aref Abdul-Baki, formerly of the USDA ’s Beltsville (Md.) This has resulted in two apparent types, both usually sold as “common” or “variety not stated” (VNS). It should be a relatively easy task to get an annual crop to mature a couple weeks earlier, compared to some of the breakthrough plant breeding we’ve seen recently,” Moyer says. See Vetch Beats Plastic. HAIRY VETCH Vicia villosa Type: winter annual or summer annual legume Roles: N source, weed suppressor, topsoil conditioner, reduce erosion Mix with: small grains, field peas, bell beans, crimson clover, buckwheat See charts, p. 66 to 72, for ranking and management summary. 3. fourleaf vetch. Much quicker and more energy-efficient than mowing is use of a modified Buffalo rolling stalk chopper, an implement designed to shatter standing corn stubble. Note: An unmowed rye/hairy vetch mix sustained a population of aphid-eating predators that was six times that of the unmowed volunteer weeds and 87 times that of mown grass and weeds (57). “The problem is we would like it to flower a couple weeks earlier to fit our growing season. However, even in no-till systems, hairy vetch consistently provides very large N input (replacing up to 100 lb. I&J Manufacturing in Gap, Pa., fabricated the models distributed to the research teams. Vicia americana. Its C:N ratio ranges from 8:1 to 15:1, expressed as parts of C for each part of N. Rye C:N ratios range from 25:1 to 55:1, showing why it persists much longer under similar conditions than does vetch. EARLY COVER hairy vetch is about 10 days earlier than regular common seed. So, one should kept pastures at less than 10% hairy vetch and foster other legume species to avoid hairy vetch poisoning issues. It blooms during the months of March through June. ), which in turn attract important thrip predators such as insidious flower bugs (Orius insidiosus) and minute pirate bugs (Orius tristicolor). His favorite mix is 25 lb. © University of Georgia, Athens, GA 30602, UGA College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences. You can find Vetch in the following mixtures. Further delay would risk loss of soil moisture in the dry period customary there in early June. rye and 10 lb. The club was founded in 1912 as Swansea Town and joined the Football League in 1921. “We need to identify the characteristics we want in cover crops and encourage plant breeders to focus on some of those. Multiply pounds of fresh vetch by 12 to gauge available N, by 24 to find total N (377). Drill seed at 15 to 20 lb./A, broadcast 25 to 30 lb./A. The earlier planted corn had less moisture-conserving residue. For greater control of winter annual weeds and longer-lasting residue, mix hairy vetch with winter cereal grains such as rye, wheat or oats. Plant vetch 30 to 45 days before killing frost for winter annual management; in early spring for summer growth; or in July if you want to kill or incorporate it in fall or for a winter-killed mulch. —Ron Ross. Sunflower should have at least 4 expanded leaves or yield will be reduced (221, 222). Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education. Drill hairy vetch at 40 lb./A, and expect about 4 inches of top growth before dormancy, which stretches from mid- December to mid-March in Maryland. Native Introduced Native and Introduced. The vetch and vetch/rye mixture accumulated N at 130 to 180 lb./A. It improves tomato health by preventing soil splashing onto the plants, and keeps tomatoes from soil contact, improving quality. The oldest recorded birth by the Social Security Administration for the name Vetches is Saturday, February 13th, 1926. Hairy vetch improves topsoil tilth, creating a loose and friable soil structure. Hairy vetch is the vetch species most commonly grown in Georgia. Vicia sativa, known as the common vetch, garden vetch, tare or simply vetch, is a nitrogen-fixing leguminous plant in the family Fabaceae.Although considered a weed when found growing in a cultivated grainfield, this hardy plant is often grown as green manure or livestock fodder. Cover crop. Editor’s Note: PURPLE BOUNTY, a new, earlier variety of hairy vetch, was released in 2006 by the USDA -Agricultural Research Service, Beltsville, MD in collaboration with the Rodale Institute, Pennsylvania State University and Cornell University. American vetch. The system can provide its own N, quell erosion and leaching, and displace herbicides. Similarly, hairy vetch blossoms harbor flower thrips (Frankliniella spp. From 1880 to 2018 less than 5 people per year have been born with the first name Vetches. crimson clover/A. In wheat, a variety of herbicides are available, depending on crop growth stage. A closely related species—LANA woollypod vetch (Vicia dasycarpa)—was developed in Oregon and is less cold tolerant than Vicia villosa. “The requirement is that each research leader partners with a farmer cooperator to adapt the rollers to local conditions and cover cropping systems,” explains Jeff Moyer, TRI’s farm manager. This roller design works better than anything we’ve ever used,” he adds. See Establishment Guidelines for Legumes for more details. “We really like to use hairy vetch on our farm, for example, because it’s a great source of nitrogen and is a very suitable crop to plant corn into. A week later the plants missed by the roller will be back up and growing again.”. For optimal weed control with a hairy vetch mulch, select crops that form a quick canopy to compensate for the thinning mulch or use high-residue cultivators made to handle it. Their viney stems support compound leaves with narrow leaflets. The mulch retains moisture, allowing plants to use mineralized nutrients better than unmulched fields. N/A). The undercutter tool includes a flat roller attachment, which, by itself, usually provides only partial suppression unless used after flowering. USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer. A list of words that start with Vetch (words with the prefix Vetch). Grazing must be carefully managed because close grazing will result in the loss of the bud (growing point). The biggest advantage of the front-mounted roller is that the operator can roll the cover crop and no-till the cash crop in a single field pass, Moyer explains. Typically, the cover crops are no-till drilled after shredding cotton stalks in late October. The blades are welded onto the 16-inch-diameter drum, but replacement blades can be purchased from the manufacturer and bolted on as needed. To contact the manufacturer of commercially available cover crop rollers, visit www.croproller.com. However, waiting this long means it will have maximum top growth, and the tangled mass of mature vetch can overwhelm many smaller mowers or disks. A series of trials in Maryland showed a different mix of conditions. Sown mid-August, an oats/hairy vetch mix can provide heavy residue (180). Hairy vetch makes only fair grazing—livestock do not relish it. The original design has already been modified to include a 15-foot, 6-inch model suitable for use with a 6- row planter on 30-inch rows. After two months’ spring growth, flail mow or use other mechanical means to suppress the hairy vetch. Seed vetch/rye mixtures, at 15-25 lb. When was the first name Vetches first recorded in the United States? Soybean cyst nematode (Heterodera glycines) and root-knot nematode (Meliodogyne spp.) Be ready to remow or use herbicides to clean up trouble spots where hairy vetch regrows or weeds appear. Don’t plant hairy vetch with a winter grain if you want to harvest grain for feed or sale. Southern farmers can use an overwintering hairy vetch crop in continuous no-till cotton. To mow-kill for mulch, rye grown with hairy vetch improves cutting by holding the vetch off the ground to allow more complete severing of stems from roots. SARE Outreach operates under cooperative agreements with the University of Maryland to develop and disseminate information about sustainable agriculture. hairy vetch, 30 lb. Results in the other trials, which also included a pure rye cover, demonstrated the management flexibility of a legume/grain mix. Dr. Dennis Hancock Deseret milk-vetch (Astragalus desereticus)Species Description: The Deseret milk-vetch (Astragalus desereticus) is a perennial, herbaceous, subacaulescent (almost stemless) plant in thelegune family.It is approximately 2-6 inches in height, and has pinnately compound leaves (feather -like arrangement with leaflets displayed on a central stalk) that are 2-4 inches long with 11-17 leaflets. Widely adapted. At least a 50 percent, and preferably a 75 to 100 percent bloom, is recommended before rolling. Moisture-thrifty. Buy Vetch Straight . Click on an acronym to view each weed list, or click here for a composite list of Weeds of the U.S. USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer. No-till, delayed kill. Some of these species are exotics (not native to Montana) and some species have been designated as Species of Concern. Production is difficult because vetch vines will pull down all but the strongest stalks. Seed is viable for at least five years if properly stored (361). Crop Versatility. You are a unique individual. The plan outlines science-based criteria for the number and size of populations that must exist in order for the species to be considered recovered. The chevron pattern neutralizes any forces that might pull the tractor in either direction,” Moyer explains. Some years will provide wet winter/spring growing conditions, which will lead to more vetch growth than normal. The vigorous spring growth of fall-seeded hairy vetch out-competes weeds, filling in where germination may be a bit spotty. THE POSSIBILITY of using rollers to reduce herbicide use isn’t new, but advances are being made to improve the machines in ways that could make them practical for controlling no-till cover crops. In Minnesota, vetch can be interseeded into sunflower or corn at last cultivation. Also, planting in a second pass in the opposite direction from which the cover crop was rolled makes getting uniform seeding depth and spacing more difficult because the planter tends to stand the plant material back up. Dry conditions often reduce germination of hairy vetch. Mixing rye and crimson clover with hairy vetch (seeding rates of 30, 10, and 20 lb./A, respectively) extends weed control to five or six weeks, about the same as an all-rye mulch. Vicia amurensis. If the pests reach an economic threshold, plant nematode-resistant crops and consider using another cover crop. No-till corn into killed vetch. Vetch incorporation. Corn planting date comparison trials with cover crops in Maryland show that planting as late as May 15 (the very end of the month-long local planting period) optimizes corn yield and profit from the system. See Establishment Guidelines for Legumes for more details. To ask questions of The Rodale Institute, e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is a summarized list of the toxic plants to cattle discussed in detail in the publication: Poisonous Plants. The list encompasses the major honours won by Swansea City, records set by the club, their managers and their players, and details of their performance in European competition. Prepare beds—just as you would for planting tomatoes—at your prime time to seed hairy vetch. Common vetch (Vicia sativa) is a trailing winter annual weed that forms large mats of vegetation. Hairy vetch showed higher plant phosphorus (P) concentrations than crimson clover, red clover or a crimson/ryegrass mixture in a Texas trial. Transplant seedlings using a minimum tillage planter able to cut through the mulch and firm soil around the plants. Other pests include cutworms (361) and southern corn rootworm (67), which can be problems in no-till corn, tarnished plant bug, noted in coastal Massachusetts (56), which readily disperses to other crops, and two-spotted spider mites in Oregon pear orchards (142). Front Mount Benefits. Use a moderate seeding rate of 10-20 lb./A to keep the stand from getting too rank. Hairy Vetch is a nitrogen-fixing plant that works well as a cover crop. No-till innovator Steve Groff of Lancaster County, PA,, uses the rolling stalk chopper to create a killed organic mulch. Spring soil moisture was higher under the vetch or a vetch-rye mixture than under cereal rye or no cover crop. See Woollypod Vetch. We search a large scrabble dictionary for scrabble words starting with vetch - we take the letter or word you enter, and generate all words starting with Vetch.In addition there is a list of Words that end with vetch, words that contain vetch, and Synonyms of vetch.. Search for words that start with a letter or word: Overseeding into ripening corn (40 lb./A) or seeding at layby has not worked as consistently. Few legumes match hairy vetch for spring residue production or nitrogen contribution. bird vetch, Calnada pea, tufted vetch, Vicia cracca - common perennial climber of temperate regions of Eurasia and North America having dense elongate clusters of flowers bitter betch , Vicia orobus - European perennial toxic vetch “In addition, with the twisted blade design, only a very small portion of the blade touches the ground at any one time as it turns, so the full pressure of the roller is applied 1 inch at a time. Hairy vetch delivers heavy contributions of mineralized N (readily available to the following cash crop). Vetch that is suppressed or killed without disturbing the soil maintains moisture well for transplanted vegetables. There are at least 174 members of the pea family, Fabaceae, found in Montana. Farmers in the Northeast’s warmer areas plant vetch by mid-September to net 100 lb. Its high N production, vigorous growth, tolerance of diverse soil conditions, low fertility need and winter hardiness make hairy vetch the most widely used of winter annual legumes. Select a higher rate if you are seeding in spring, late in the fall, or into a weedy or sloped field. Thanks to N fixation, common vetch lowers the overall C:N ratio of mixed pastures (common vetch/cereal), and speeds up decomposition (Sattell et al., 1998). In spring, hairy vetch continues to add N through its “seed set” stage after blooming. This site is maintained by SARE Outreach for the SARE program and is based upon work supported by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture, under award No. Some types of vetch are sometimes grown as a crop . Their flowers usually have white to purple or blue hues, but may be red or yellow; they are pollinated by bumblebees, honey bees, solitary bees and other insects. Direct combine at mid-bloom to minimize shattering, or swath up to a week later. rye/A (81, 361). The 14-day interval was critical to rid the field of prairie voles, present due to the field’s thick fescue thatch. In a related study on the Maryland Coastal Plain, hairy vetch proved to be the most profitable fall-planted, spring desiccated legume ahead of no-till corn, compared with Austrian winter peas and crimson clover (243). Even without crediting its soil-improving benefits, hairy vetch increases N response and produces enough N to pay its way in many systems. Its effectiveness wanes as it decomposes, falling off significantly after about three or four weeks. The TRI ground-driven roller has a single cylinder and two offset bearings inset 3 inches on either side and fronted with a shield. Leaving unmowed remnant strips can lessen movement of disruptive pests while still allowing you to kill most of the cover crop (56). When the no-tilled vetch was left to grow one season until seed set, it produced 6 tons of dry matter and contributed a potentially polluting 385 lb. The original 10-foot, 6-inch roller width is equal to 4 rows on 30-inch spacing, with a 3-inch overlap on each end. However, it needs to be a small portion of the pasture (i.e., diet). Trials in southeastern Pennsylvania with many accessions of hairy vetch showed big flower vetch (Vicia grandiflora, cv WOODFORD) was the only vetch species hardier than hairy vetch. Growth quickens in spring, when hairy vetch becomes a sprawling vine up to 12 feet long. Add to Likebox #122290044 - macro photo of blooming vetch summer or spring morning. If you want to save dollars by growing your own seed, be aware that the mature pods shatter easily, increasing the risk of volunteer weeds. Prominent among beneficial predators associated with hairy vetch are lady beetles, seven-spotted ladybeetles (56) and bigeyed bugs (Geocaris spp.). As a rule, to gauge the optimum hairy vetch kill date, credit vetch with adding two to three pounds of N per acre per sunny day after full spring growth begins. Also useful in killing hairy vetch on raised beds for vegetables and cotton is the improved prototype of an undercutter that leaves severed residue virtually undisturbed on the surface (96). The Plants Database includes the following 69 species of Vicia . Rolling the field and no-tilling in one pass also eliminates the problem of creating a thick green cover crop mat that makes it difficult to see a row marker line on a second pass for planting. Similar Images . “Our goal is to gain more knowledge about the soil building and weed management effects of cover crops while reducing the need for herbicides,” he says. Killing Your mode of killing hairy vetch and managing residue will depend on which of its benefits are most important to you. “We realize that 6-row equipment is small by today’s standards, and work is under way on a system that mounts one section of the roller in front of the tractor with the remainder mounted on the planter ahead of the row units. Hairy vetch is ideal ahead of early-summer planted or transplanted crops, providing N and an organic mulch. The best time for no-till corn planting into hairy vetch varies with local rainfall patterns, soil type, desired N contribution, season length and vetch maturity. Its abundant, viney biomass can be a benefit and a challenge. In an Ohio trial, corn no-tilled into hairy vetch at mid-bloom in May received better early season weed control from vetch mulch than corn seeded into vetch killed earlier. The chevron pattern on the face of the roller came about after the designers realized that mounting the roller blades in a straight line would cause excessive bouncing, while just curving the blades in a screw pattern would act like an auger and create a pulling effect. It overcomes both the bounce of straight-line blades and the auguring effect of corkscrew blades. The other type has smoother, deep-green foliage and pink to violet flowers. Cutting hairy vetch close to the ground at full bloom stage usually will kill it. Generally, older cattle can be affected by this problem more than younger, but that doesnât prevent it from affecting calves or cows < 3 yrs of age. Vetch mixed with rye has provided similar or even increased yields compared with systems that include conventional tillage, winter fallow weed cover and up to 60 pounds of N fertilizer per acre.
