Grain or Forage Oat | Cover Crop Oat | 50 lb. Bag

   Jerry is a very popular tall and leafy western oat. It has wider leaves, grows taller, and yields much more than a common oat. Jerry Oats will kill off winter weeds and hold soil with a mat of vegetation. They are great for garlic beds and other vegetables. The oats remain green into November and form a mulched bed for spring planting. Jerry Oats can serve mulitple purposes--providing a great grain or forage crop, a great cover crop, or an excellent nurse crop for transitioning crops. 

   Jerry Oats provide good lodging resistance and can be mixed with peas to make a great nurse crop for alfalfa or for a fall quick-feed emergency. They freeze at 20-22 F and work as both a spring and a fall seed. For forage use, plant at 100 lb/ac (3 bu/ac). Oats will reach late boot stage in approximately 55-60 days. For use as a cover crop, plant oats at 15-50 lb/ac depending on desired thickness and mix. For nurse crop use, plant oats at 32 lb/ac (1 bu/ac). For use as a grain, plant at 64 lb/ac (2 bu/ac).
