Sunn Hemp

Crop Type Seeds/Lb Minimum Germination Temperature
warm season legume 15,000 60F

Sunn Hemp has been shown as a great option for producing nitrogen, biomass and its ability to get germinated and established quickly. From our experience of planting it on our dryland, sunn hemp did well despite the lack of moisture it needs. All in all, it has potential of being applied more across Montana but more testing needs to be done for us to feel confident in using it.
