  • Additional Information
Both Purple Bounty and Purple Prosperity are winterhardy, earlier maturing hairy vetch varieties developed for high nitrogen fixation (up to half of a subsequent crop's nitrogen), increased biomass for a thicker mulch and earlier flowering for more flexibility in planting succeeding crops. Purple vetch forms ground cover slowly in the fall, but root development continues through the winter with substantial growth in the spring. For maximum results, purple vetch should be in full bloom to allow for peak nitrogen contribution and to mow, roll or spray for maximum vetch kill. Spring oats or winter grains can also be planted with purple vetch to act as a protective cover for improved winter survival and increased erosion control. Plant 20 to 25 lbs. per acre.
