How to make a 6spp mix

Our 6-species "Insurance" Mix (6spp) aims to meet several farm goals. By increasing the number of species in the mix, we expect that we should have lower year to year variability in performance of the mixture, while meeting multiple farm goals. 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.
