Winter Rye is an excellent winter field cover crop because it rapidly produces a ground cover that holds soil in place against the forces of wind and water. Rye's deep roots help prevent compaction in Annually tilled fields and, because its roots are quite extensive, winter rye also has a positive effect on soil tilth. Winter rye is often paired with a legume, such as vetch or field peas. Planting rate of winter rye is about 55 to 60 lbs of seed per acre.
