Forb Feast Chicory is a cool-season perennial cover crop or forage, highly recommended for inclusion in a holistically managed system. It has a deep taproot that effectively mines hard to access minerals and is slow bolting. This results in a cold hardy plant that produces nutrient dense foliage extending into cooler weather, highly adaptable to drought or high precipitation, mild temperatures or extreme heat, and a wide variety of soil conditions. Forb Feast Chicory improves pastures by loosening compacted soils, improving infiltration, increasing trace mineral availability for other pasture species, and attracting birds, insects, and other wildlife. The forage is very palatable, high in protein and energy, excellent source of trace minerals, anti-parasitic properties, particularly beneficial for ruminant livestock.
Depending on the source, the Forb Feast Chicory seed will always be non-GMO, but sometimes it is raw and sometimes it has an OMRI-listed coating. Please call us to find out about the current stock.
