Pulse USA gets you the crops you need

Cover Crop Blends

This year we are celebrating our tenth year of being your “one-stop-shop” for cover crop seed. The cover crop industry has changed and evolved in many ways within the last ten years. At Pulse USA specifically, our strong relationships with plant breeders across the globe have allowed us to add more top-of-the-line species into our cover crop program. We believe in the value of high quality genetics to help you and your farm over common varieties that are in the marketplace. We strive to use each individual cover crop component to create mixes that will address specific goals on your farm. While we are creating these mixes, we will always make sure they are compatible seed sizes and fit for your geography. In an effort to make sure we meet your individual needs, we will continue to provide custom cover crop blends. From planting a cover crop for livestock feed to bringing saline areas back into production, the possibilities begin to seem endless! Cover crops continually prove to be a cost-effective tool to biologically maintain and enhance our environment as we modernize in farming practices. We promise to you and your future generations that we will continue to be your local cover crop leader.

Cultivator is our 50/50 radish/ turnip mixture. It is a simple solution for soaking up excess moisture, alleviating compaction and creating root channels for air and water movement. The seeding rate could be increased for areas that receive above average precipitation, have high water tables or areas that historically drown out.

Grazer is our most popular blend that is designed as a highly digestible and palatable blend for rotational or continuous grazing. Most species in the blend are cool season so grazing can occur later in the year without the crops turning brown at the first sign of cool, autumn temperatures or freezing. It fits well for planting early in the year and grazing all season or planting later with extended grazing periods into the winter months. It is also great for improving overall soil health.

Grazer 2.0 NEW!

Grazer 2.0 is a spin-off of our original Grazer blend. It was designed for planting into warmer soil temperatures and grazing before freeze up.

Preventive Plant

Preventive Plant is our blend recommended for Preventive Plant acres to utilize moisture, provide late season cover and to fixate Nitrogen. Since areas with excessive moisture tend to also have saline seeps, we’ve added barley to help with any saline issues. The inclusion of our winter pea is great for keeping something green out there longer than spring annuals. This mix has approximately 500,000 seeds/acre so you could always increase the seeding rate to provide even more ground cover and soak up more water.

Preventive Plant Grazing

Prevent Plant Grazing is designed for Preventive Plant acres with consideration of the November 1st grazing/haying deadline in mind. It is mostly cool season species to ensure that you have adequate forage late in the growing season for your livestock. We do have the option to substitute annuals for winter annuals if you’d like to use up even more moisture the following Spring. The Japanese Millet is great at suppressing weeds, cattle love the sweetness of the hybrid sorghum sudangrass and the Piper sudangrass has relative feed value and plant height as the Japanese Millet for a nice balanced mixture. The inclusion of collards, kale, radish and turnip are going to be great for soaking up moisture and mighty tasty for the livestock.
