Abstract

Sowing rye seeds along with crop seeds in a bareroot nursery in fall protects the beds from erosion and predation. For large-seeded species, an additional covering of straw further discourages predation from deer and squirrels. The rye is killed in early spring and the straw mulch can easily be removed in early spring with controlled burning.
