Cereal Rye

Cereal Rye

Winter cereal rye is a cool season crop seeded in fall and will germinate in soil temperatures as low as 34 degrees.  It will give some growth in fall, though not as much as oats planted in fall, and will survive and break dormancy before anything else in spring.  It will need to be killed in spring if corn or soybeans will be seeded, and the longer it grows the harder it will be to control.  Rye does a good job of removing excess nutrients from the soil, spring residue can result in germination issues with subsequent crops.
