Elbon has excellent winter forage production and early maturity. It has an upright growth habit and large soft stems. The forage has high moisture content, produces plants which have more winter growth, are more erect, and are approximately two weeks earlier than Abruzzi. Elbon is winter hardy and will grow rapidly during the warm periods in the cold winter months. Late freezes may injure the plant but it will usually recover and produce a seed crop. A great crop cover also the hardiest seeds for food plots or mixes. Rye is a winter annual pasture grass and an excellent cover crop. Elbon Rye has good fall and spring growth and is more winter-hardy than wheat or oats. Elbon Rye puts on much growth in winter when temperatures are above freezing. Although slightly less attractive than wheat or oats, it makes a good companion crop in a mix with small grains and clovers because of its extreme cold-hardiness. Plant August through October for good fall growth. Planting Rate: 90-120 lbs. per acre alone or 90 lbs. in a mix.
