Fall crop bookings are happening fairly fast this season, we have had some very big yields from hybrid fall rye (as high as 14 MT on dryland south of us) and chopping has been going on for almost a month as people take it at different stages.
I have been having swathing or straight cut questions on the hybrid rye and generally straight cutting is recommended. When letting stand wind storms can be a concern as it can make the heads hit together and it seems like rye takes a bit of time to finish the season. In Europe they will let these varieties stand and then harvest a couple points above dry (14%) and put on air. We don't get as much rain here typically so swathing can be an option and timing is similar to other cereals although it seems to need an extra day or two in the swath vs a winter wheat.
For cover crops, or annual grazing blends or smother blends (brassicas, radishes, turnips, clovers, and more) check out the bottom of the email for details. They come in 25 kg bags and we can blend with fall or spring crops. We also sell in 50 lb or 25 kg bags sizes all the individual species.
Dryland crops look big this season, some years we have been harvesting for a week or more already but this season we are a couple weeks away! Below is AAC Chrome Yellow pea on dryland:
