Positive Farmerdill On Sep 2, 2004, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

This is the more popular cultivar of Rye in the southeast. It is primarily sown as a wineter covercrop (green manure crop on fields and gardens. It is also planted extenively in wildlife plots. Some feed and seed stores even label it deer rye. A few farmers still combine fairly large acreage, but their market is primarily seed stock. It yields the heaviest tonnage of green manure so I use it on all cultivated fields.
