Crown Vetch Seed For Food Plots & Erosion Control Plants

Crown Vetch Seed produces a plant that is used in wildlife food plots, as a ground cover, erosion control plant and as green fertilizer. If not properly maintained, Crown Vetch can be considered an invasive species in that it spreads rapidly by rhizomes and seeds it can take over open fields and other areas that are not maintained. It is a prolific seed producer once established. Please use caution when planting Crown Vetch. You must be able to maintain it by controlling it's growth areas or it will "escape" into areas that you had not planned on planting in crown vetch.

Crown Vetch Use - Food Plots

Crown Vetch Seed is used to produce food plots that have a mounded type growth pattern providing good ground cover for ground nesting birds, rabbits and other small mammals as well as providing forage for deer and elk. Deer are known to paw away a winter snow layer in order to get to the crown vetch to feed. Crown Vetch will shed seeds through the summer for quail and other game birds. make excellent cover for quail, other ground birds and small mammals. Deer love to graze on crown vetch which has crude protein and fiber content similar to other forage legumes.

Crown Vetch Use - Erosion Control / Ground Cover

Crown vetch is a deep-rooted plant that will grow on almost any soil and is used on roadsides, slopes, embankments, strip mine sites and so forth. Due to the extensive deep root system and close growth pattern it is an excellent plant for soil stabilization. Crown vetch also pulls nitrogen from the air and puts it into the soil thus it is also used as a green fertilizer for poor soil improvement. As an herbaceous plant (leaves and stems die at ground level after growing season) the organic matter created here is an organic mulch.

Areas of Adaptation for Crown Vetch

Crown vetch will survive in the following USDA Zones: USDA Zone 4a: to -34.4 C (-30 F);
USDA Zone 4b: to -31.6 C (-25 F); USDA Zone 5a: to -28.8 C (-20 F); USDA Zone 5b: to -26.1 C (-15 F); USDA Zone 6a: to -23.3 C (-10 F); USDA Zone 6b: to -20.5 C (-5 F); USDA Zone 7a: to -17.7 C (0 F); USDA Zone 7b: to -14.9 C (5 F); USDA Zone 8a: to -12.2 C (10 F); USDA Zone 8b: to -9.4 C (15 F); USDA Zone 9a: to -6.6 C (20 F); USDA Zone 9b: to -3.8 C (25 F); USDA Zone 10a: to -1.1 C (30 F); USDA Zone 10b: to 1.7 C (35 F)

Planting Penngift Crown Vetch Seed

Seeds should be inoculated before planting. This variety, Penngift, is pre-inoculated so you do not have to worry with this when planting.

Planting Rate: Seed at a rate of 20 lbs per acre. For smaller plots plant 1 lb. per 1000 sq. ft. Broadcast rates should be higher than drilled rates.
Planting Dates: Best planting time is in the spring (March - Mid-May). Crown Vetch may also be planted in the fall, usually in September.

Establishment of Penngift Crown Vetch

It is very important that you control the growth of crown vetch with mowing, weed eating or (least desirable) herbicides. Burning crown vetch does not kill the plant as the roots survive beneath the soil. If mown too much crown vetch will not survive. Fertilization on an annual basis will keep the forage and seed rate higher.
