OPTIONS


***NOT TO TAS, WA***  (Triticum spelta)  Persian heirloom dating back thousands of years.  Produces versatile grain which is low in gluten & has a low G.I.   Commonly used for food, fodder & as a green manure crop. 

Highly beneficial when used as a cover crop to prevent soil erosion.  After harvest, the tough, resilient stubble may be left as a protective cover to reduce blowing of the soil, and to assist colonisation by other species. 

When grown as a green manure crop, plants are best dug back into the soil when the leaves are still fresh & green after approx. 8 weeks after planting.  Allow the green manure to break down in the soil for up to 4 weeks before planting any vegetables.

Best sown during Autumn & Winter.

Broadcast as needed or at a rate of 40-50kg/ha.  

Smaller packets are ideal for the home garden.

Grown on a certified organic farm.
