FL 401 Grain Rye Seed - (Florida Black Rye) Florida 401 rye is commonly referred to as "Florida Black Rye."  FL 401 Grain rye comes up early in the season and is widely used for windbreaks, erosion control, cover crops, winter cattle forage, haylege and for weed suppression in the cool season. FL 401 Grain Rye is much taller than other varieties.  Grain Rye varieties have extensive root systems making them among the best green manures for improving soil. While it stabilizes excess soil and manure nitrogen it also is an excellent soil renovator and pioneer crop for new fields. FL 401 Grain rye can reach a height of 4 to 5 feet tall and is very fast to establish, producing deer feed in as little as fourteen days in ideal conditions. This winter grazer rye grain is preferred by deer, turkey, and rabbit.
