Soil Problems
Q.

High nitrogen level

Zone Bakersfield Can Zone 9 | Anonymous added on September 1, 2016 | 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
