 Product Description

Widely adapted to varied soil types including droughty sands, low fertility & low OM soils. Plant after soil temperatures are >65°F. Drill or broadcast June 1st - July 15th depending on the area you live.

The leaves are a very high protein. Close to 20%. When plants have achieved a sufficient height you can let your animals in to graze. When the leaves are all picked off, remove the animals and allow the Sunn Hemp to regrow. Should take about 2-3 weeks to get new leaves. Then animals can be let in to graze a second time.
