Abruzzi Rye is a fast-growing, versatile and low maintenance seed. It can be used as a winter cover crop throughout the Southeastern United States. Abruzzi Rye is very cold tolerant and produces more forage than wheat and oats. This grain is also very palatable and nutritious, making it popular with grazing animals. Abruzzi Rye controls erosion, suppresses weeds, adds organic matter and improves overall soil structure, releasing phosphorus and potassium to enrich the soil.
