I’m thinking of finally planting some vetch within the next few weekends and was wondering if any of you has success with it in dry locations? The areas I wanna plant or in bottoms but are fairly dry due to being in clear cuts or in short pines. Any info is appreciated as this would be my 2nd time planting this with the 1st time being over 12 years ago with ok results.

It does better in lower land that stays moist, but we have some in upland areas as well. Prep the seedbed, inoculate, top sew and pray for a light rain. We use a seed rate between 7-10# per acre. Others recommend even higher, but we didn't see the need.

The rain kept us from planting until this past weekend. I would have preferred to have it in the ground about 3-4 weeks ago simply because they could be eating it now, but it will do fine.

We don't fertilize it. We have sprayed herbicide before, but it really wasn't necessary.
