    Description

    Those who grow hardwood seedlings are familiar with fall sowing seeds and using rye, wheat, or oats to over-winter the crop. Throughout this paper, reference to rye is GRAIN, NOT GRASS (do not use rye grass). The rye stabilizes and insulates the beds while retarding predation and weeds. Normally sown at 2 bushels/ac (5 bushels/ha), the rye is killed with Roundup™ before the seeds germinate (around mid-February), allowing the seeds to germinate and emerge unimpeded. Light-seeded, fall-sown hardwoods often necessitate only 1 bushel/ac (2.5 bushels/ha).
