Soil Amendments

High Nitrogen Level


dons916 added on September 1, 2015 | Answered

I received the results from my soil test and very high Nitrogen (93ppm). They recommend a high feeding grass only cover crop. This will add the needed organic matter (0.8) and lower nitrogen level. Question is, will Rye grass do the job? Thanks Don, Zone 9
