Over seeding cerial rye.

Recommended Posts

My clover is up and my radishes are up . It has been 2 weeks and the deer are on it all day long. I wanted to wait 2 more weeks to put the rye on but I think the deer are going to wipe  out every thing.

We have rain coming Wednesday.  I was wondering if I should overseed the plot  or wait .

Also.. when overseading  do I just spread it  and let it go . Not sure what is the proper method is . Disking or driving over I don't think is an option as far as damaging my clover and radish.  What do you guys do ?

Cereal rye seed and winter rye are the same thing, aren't they ??

I never planted it but I'm considering buying  bag to fill in any bare /thin spots in my winter wheat when it comes up..

Turkeys may be a problem for me, too..They were on my wheat/clover plot yesterday less than an hour after I finished planting it..

Spread it as close to rain as possible, it keeps the turkeys from getting too much of the seed. And i like to spread on the heavy side as not all of it will germinate. But yes, just broadcast it where you want it, and rain and dews will help the seed get started.. Turkeys scoop seeds quick, especially on fresh dirt..

Cereal rye and winter rye are the same as far as I know.

I did the naked Indian rain dance  before  I left the field .... I think I broke the camera.

Glad I missed that.. I'd have clawed my eyes out...

We got a little rain here in Dogpatch...barely enough to ley the dust, but better than nothing and perhaps enough to encourage germination..

I have been trying to get back up to 9j to put down some rye and wheat for 4 weeks. I might need to take a day off to do it at this rate weekends have been busy with family stuff. How late do you guys think is to late to over seed my clover and brassicas.

Depending on how soon the cold gets here i have read rye can go in as late as October.

Just checked my rain gauge after a day of light rain/drizzle.. Two tenths of an inch...That is a significant amount as far as germinating a new plot goes...And it came slow and easy, rather than a sudden downpour...

I think we go lucky, Tracker !!

Just spread a bag in the rain in corn the coon and deer and squirrels tore down already 5 yard s wide and close to 40 yards long, tried to fill in again where turkeys picked it so bad , though a lot Is still coming there  i hope it fills in a bit thicker.

Not that I can say I don't have coons but I don't get pictures of them on my cell cams. Then again I don't have corn .

A buddy from work says he has something  in his corn that's  pulling it all into piles and eating it . I told him its a bear. Only animal I have ever seen do that. They will wipe out alot of corn in a hurry .

You can plant wheat and Rye up into early October.. but the later you plant you need to hope warm weather stays on your side a tad longer to get the extra growth.. October planted it will only get a few inches tall. Mid to late September Rye or wheat plantings will be just fine. and will be about perfect for height.. 6-8in tall. I wouldn't mess around with late planting of oats.. it will get a couple inches tall and then the first frost would kill it. If your seeding into brassicas, you wont want to seed very heavy unless they are growing really well.. Brassicas dont like competition.. Too thick of a seeding will stunt your big leaf plants

I agree about the WI oats. Used them last year and did again this year in a different plot. Green and going strong late into the season.

Took 3 days but the turkey found it .8b7f83e0-b431-414c-9d19-216f9189160e_137465768543028.jpg.867409979da257785510c231ebabc36b.jpg
