I myself just got a home mix planted that I use of Oats, Winter peas and Winter Wheat. Literally got the last seeds finished up just as the rain started falling. Hoping it turns out good. I know lots of people use clover but just curious what all types of different things you guys use.

We used a few different mixes this year.

On the ridge top plots that we also plant in summer plots we just use a mix of wheat,oats, and crimson clover.

On the ridge top plots that we don't want to replant every year, we planted wheat, crimson clover and arrow-leaf clover. With these plot we will go in around the middle of July and bushhog, and run a disk over them, and they will reseed themselves.

In our low land plots we planted a mix of 50% durana clover and 50% red clover, and used wheat as a cover crop.

I've tried more plant species than I can count, but my favorites are cereal grains (wheat/oats), annual clovers (crimson and arrowleaf), Austrian Winter Peas, and several different varieties of brassica (Dwarf Essex Rape, turnips, etc.)

Most of my annual plots this year were pretty basic - winter wheat, crimson clover, 7 top and purple top turnips.

For the perennials it was winter wheat, crimson, durana, patriot, and red clover.

This rain will definitely help!!

On our lease we had winter wheat, oats, rye, and a couple other things I don't remember. At my house I planted winter wheat and a little bit of oats just for fun.

I have two plots of Imperial clover/chicory that was planted last fall, and this year I tried a small plot of PT turnips/Dwarf Essex Rape. I got it in the ground the week before we got all the residual rain from Hurricane Ivan, so it came up pretty strong
