Saia Oats (LOCAL PRODUCT)
New for 2020, from Kenagy Family Farm in Albany.
Good winter cover, somewhat easier to kill in spring than rye. Root exudates inhibit growth of competing plants; this is very useful for weed suppression, but be sure to wait 1-2 weeks after crimping/tilling in oats before planting a crop.
Kenagy Family Farm is an unconventional conventional farm that puts careful attention and effort to habitat and ecosystem stewardship. With a keen eye on invasive weed management they employ cultural, chemical, manual and mechanical techniques to keep seed crops the highest quality possible. Most crops are also grown no-till, as a part of a highly diversified and integrated system.
