    When do you sow/broadcast the Rye for April grazing?

    • Matt Bomgardner says:

      Rob,
      I have drilled rye from early September to early November. The earlier the seeding the quicker it seems to take off in spring. There is a possibility of grazing the rye in fall but care should be taken to not overgraze. I would not graze rye in fall unless it is 8 inches or taller.
