How to make a 4spp mix

Our 4-species Mix (4spp) aims to support pollinators and beneficial insects, suppress weeds and manage nitrogen before a corn cash crop. This figure illustrates the % of monoculture seeding rate we have used for each species in the mix, and gives the lb/acre seeding rate and cost/acre for the mix. Seed prices are for organic when available, as we are in transition to certified organic. Appropriate seeding rates for your farm will vary based on climate and other farm characteristics.
