Biomass comparisons of the three planting dates on June 1, 2007, revealed that fall-planted fared the best, yielding 7016 lbs/acre of dry matter, followed by the December dormant seeded vetch, at 5983 lbs/acre, and spring seeded with 4255 lbs/acre. 0000001856 00000 n Crimson can grow at lower temperatures better then almost any other clover species. As temperatures gradually warm and days lengthen, seeds begin to absorb moisture, and the new seedlings grow rapidly as growing degree day units increase. In southern Illinois, hairy vetch no-tilled into fescue provided 40 to 180 lb. A heavy Without something to climb, vetch can reach heights of about one foot, but grows much higher with a form of support, such as a fence. 0000002253 00000 n vtt4�5 +�a+��bU�� A later planting date means increased probability of temperatures dipping below these ranges, which means less likelihood that plants will grow enough to conduct adequate energy reserves, through photosynthesis, into their root storage systems. x�bb�g`b``�� �)7 xref A dormant seed should be just as the name implies throughout the cold months—asleep and inactive beneath soil, residue and snow. Despite the deceptive warmth, growing hairy vetch as it was destined to grow—as a winter annual—would have been risky business. 0000002780 00000 n View our financial 0000001237 00000 n 0000012342 00000 n 0000009665 00000 n and 15 to 20 pounds of vetch per acre should be used. 0000003908 00000 n And if it is okay, should I soak the seeds in warm water for 24 hours prior to planting? Crown vetch is an extremely aggressive perennial that is used for erosion control, not as a cover crop. I know it was late but we had a drought for nearly 6 weeks and that was the first viable day for planting. 0000004370 00000 n But it is probably better than nothing for the farmer who missed their ideal fall seeding window. 0000010531 00000 n WinterKing hairy vetch can be seeded at a rate of 10-40 lbs/acre depending on the mix or purpose. The idea behind dormant seeding is to plant when it’s cold enough to inhibit the seed’s germination so that it lies dormant over winter and is ready to germinate when the ground first begins to thaw—but is still too wet to drive through. The 'Madison Vetch' variety was developed in Nebraska, and is apparently cold tolerant. %PDF-1.4 %���� The leaves have 12 to 20 leaflets and terminate with tendrils. Minimum Germination Temp: 60 ℉. 0000007789 00000 n Peak N production occurs during flowering around the middle of May when it is induced by 12 hours of daylight. endstream endobj 120 0 obj<>/Metadata 19 0 R/PieceInfo<>>>/Pages 18 0 R/PageLayout/OneColumn/OCProperties<>/StructTreeRoot 21 0 R/Type/Catalog/LastModified(D:20061002112745)/PageLabels 16 0 R>> endobj 121 0 obj<>/PageElement<>>>/Name(HeaderFooter)/Type/OCG>> endobj 122 0 obj<>/ColorSpace<>/Font<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text/ImageC]/ExtGState<>>>/Type/Page>> endobj 123 0 obj<> endobj 124 0 obj<> endobj 125 0 obj<> endobj 126 0 obj<> endobj 127 0 obj<> endobj 128 0 obj[/ICCBased 142 0 R] endobj 129 0 obj<> endobj 130 0 obj<> endobj 131 0 obj<> endobj 132 0 obj<> endobj 133 0 obj<>stream Since temperature had a strong influence on germination, seeding time for some legumes should be selected to match expected temperatures for particular locations.

The best time for planting no-till corn into hairy vetch varies with local rainfall patterns, soil type, desired N contribution, season length, and vetch maturity. Fall temperatures during the experiment year were warmer than usual, so many time-strapped farmers were calling Dave in October to ask if they could still plant hairy vetch. It is best used in mixtures with cool season annual grasses and clovers. This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged. 0000025657 00000 n 0000005231 00000 n Growth correlates with growing degree days (units of average daily temperature compared to a base at which no growth takes place) which are calculated for hairy vetch using a base temperature of 4° C (39.2° F).
