Mid July Update: Oats that Were Underseeded with Medium Red Clover

They are Morton Oats, drilled at 2 bushels/acre between May 7th and 9th, on a total of 102 acres. At the same time the grass seed box was putting on 10 lbs/acre of clover.

We will swath the oats in a couple of weeks, then run them through the pick up head on the combine. The clover will continue growing this year and next, getting mowed to keep it from going to seed. In 2022 this ground will be ready for it's first certified organic cash crop, probably soybeans.
