Rye Seed

SPRING RYE SEED

Currently there is only one spring rye variety in Canada. Gazelle spring rye was developed by the Department of Crop Science, University of Saskatchewan. Spring rye seed is smaller than fall rye seed. Seeding rates for spring rye generally fall between 90-105 lb. per acre. This rate is calculated by targeting 30 plants per square ft..

FALL RYE SEED

Fall rye performs well on sandy, erosion prone soils. Its tolerance to drought gives it an advantage over other cereals when moisture is limited. It is used primarily as a

grazing crop through the spring and summer, followed by a grain harvest the second year. The grain yield is reduced, but the utility of the crop increased.
