Description

"Tropic Sun" (Crotalaria juncea) Lots of green manure in less than 2 months! A fast growing, heat loving legume, is a superb green manure crop used as a Summer cover crop. EXCELLENT source of organic nitrogen, for increasing soil organic matter, for controlling root-knot nematodes, for loosening subsoil. 'Tropic Sun' should be grown for a period of 60 days or less or no more than 3 feet in height before cutting or mowing and incorporating into your soil. At this stage, nitrogen is high and decomposition is fast. Being in the hemp family, it may become fibrous and difficult to plow if it is left longer than the recommended period. Irrigation may be needed for rapid germination and growth. Although drought tolerant, it should receive a minimum of one inch of moisture per week for best growth. Needs good soil drainage, will not tolerate being soggy. Mowing before turning under may be beneficial. Inoculate and instructions included. 2 oz package averages 1400 seeds will cover 250 square feet.
