Vicia villosa- Hardy, viny, winter annual legume, attaining a height of 24 inches when planted alone and higher when planted with a tall companion crop that provides structural support for climbing. Plant in the fall, cold tolerant, flowers in April and ripens seed in May-June. Used as a cover crop, green manure, pasture, silage, and hay. It is capable of contributing large amounts of soil organic matter and nitrogen to a following crop. Fixes 90 - 120 lbs. N/Acre.

It is best to first inoculate the seed just before planting with the Exceed Inoculant. Most farmers plant hairy vetch at 30-40 lb/acre when sown alone, and 25 lb/acre when sown with rye. We recommend mixing rye and vetch together for maximum organic matter & weed suppression.
Handlers certificates and available from the seedhouse we purchase our organically grown seed from. Once you purchase the seed, refer to the bag label for the seedhouse, then search their web site for their handlers certificate. We recommend that you also save your seed label as you will need it for your certifying agency inspection. We also have some handlers certificates under our Resource page.
