BioGrowers of large and small grains for five generations.
We specialize in open pollinated grains for affordable food, feed, seed, and cover crops: Turkey Red hard red winter wheat, Snow White hard white winter wheat, forage sorghum, grain sorghum, flint corn, and more planned.
Plant winter wheat in the fall and it will put down thin roots underground and a lawn-like carpet above ground. It grows two-feet, to five-feet tall the following spring. It can be harvested for straw and grain the that summer.
Winter wheat self-terminates as a cover crop if you plant it in the spring; it won't develop seed properly without winter freezing (vernalization.)
