A common vetch, which delivers a quick coverage of soil, highly productive and rich in proteins. BARVICOS fixes large amounts of nitrogen and is high in protein. It can be used for annual forage production either alone or in a mixture with grasses. It is also ideal for green manuring. BARVICOS has vigorous growth and is winter hardy. It will establish and grow well on most soil types, helping to soak up nutrients and hold in the soil for use by spring cropping or reseeding. Vetch can be used typically 70-100 days after sowing, when 30-50% of the plants have flowered.
