Tillage RootMax

Cover Crop Ryegrass

CCS Crimson

Clover

Coated and preinoculated

THIS MIX IS EXCELLENT FOR:

3 Scavenging and storing N

3 Building soil structure

3 Generally restoring soil health

3 Relieving compaction

For Deep Rooting and Proven Yield Improvements

INDY delivers a bundle of benefits, starting with the amazing Tillage

Radish® taproot that drills right through tough compaction, and Tillage

RootMax Cover Crop Ryegrass with its fibrous roots that are renowned

for building soil structure. Add the nitrogen fixing advantages

of CCS Crimson Clover and you have an outstanding option for getting

more out of your cover crop program.

To maximize forage potential increase seeding rate to 20 lb /acre. INDY

includes RootMax Cover Crop Ryegrass, and adding clover increases

the protein content. Adding Tillage Radish® adds protein content and

digestibility. The addition of clover can slow down rate of digestion to

help extract maximum nutrition.
