The Teton PeakBlend is a combination of cereal rye, crimson clover and radish. This mixture of grass, legume and broadleaf excels at all of the cover crop objectives. This is a very similar mixture to the TillageMax Indy blend. We have substituted cereal rye for annual ryegrass for those producers who prefer using cereal rye instead of annual ryegrass, or in regions where annual ryegrass has a hard time overwintering.

Termination: Cereal rye is less competitive than annual ryegrass and more readily controlled by burndown herbicides. Glyphosate (4.5 lb ae/gal formulation) at a rate of 22 fl oz/A will effectively control up to 18 inches tall, although applications should be made to smaller plants when possible and prior to the boot stage. Adding one pint of 2,4-D type herbicide along with glyphosate will also control winter peas and any remaining radishes that overwintered.
