Vetch, Hairy
Vetch, Hairy OG Vicia villosa subsp. villosa Vigorous cover crop generates copious amounts of organic matter. Excellent nitrogen fixation, over 100#/acre. Its vigor can create problems, especially in the home garden: the tangled vines can clog even large mowers. Later planting allows for better control. Use a flail mower or scythe to cut it back in fall and incorporate the stubble in the spring before the regrowth becomes unmanageable. Tolerates acidic soils and low fertility, but not poor drainage. Seed at 20-40#/acre, 1#/1000 sq ft. Some lots Maine-grown at Aurora Farm in Linneus. Certified organic. Raw seed; use with Field Pea & Vetch inoculant.

Additional Information

Farm Seed

Unless otherwise noted, our legume seed is sold “raw”: it has not been inoculated with the appropriate bacteria in a process called rhizocoating.

Organic Seed

We are a MOFGA-certified organic repacker and handler of seed and feed.
All our seed is untreated.

Organically grown seed is labeled OG.
The label ECO after the variety name describes non-certified seed grown without pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers on farms which maintain an active soil-building program. Some farmers eschew certification for a variety of reasons, ideological, economic and otherwise.
