Known as a “grain of poverty”, due to it’s hardiness and ability to grow in poor and sandy soils, is a great crop for Ontario, with our interminable winter. Planted in the fall, it provides soil cover over winter, helping prevent erosion and protection against winter- tolerant weeds and early spring weeds. Ready by late June/July, well before spring wheat, giving farmers an early income and some security in case the spring crops fail. Once harvested, the stems can be used as hay or if it fails, it provides nitrogen for spring crops, like barley. https://www.thegrainproject.com/grains
