Vetches

Vetch is normally sown in the drier areas and are normally paired with oats for grazing or hay. Vetch can be particularly useful in cereal cropping rotations sown alone as it provides nitrogen for the following crop and can be made into high protein hay (protein levels of approx. 20-25%) or turned into a green manure crop. It also provides an excellent alternative crop for controlling cereal root disease.
