Benefits of SoilBuilder spring mixes:
• Perfect for seeding following corn or soybeans and ahead of planting winter wheat
• Features an ideal ratio of grasses, brassicas and legumes to keep the soil covered, intact and in good condition
• Stimulates microbial activity, conserves soil moisture and prepares the seedbed for fall wheat seeding
• Works well in a corn rotation provided it can be seeded in very early spring and corn planting is later
• Can be used for rotational grazing programs or hay

A separate spring mix for a soybean rotation features grasses and brassicas that get beneficial soil organisms off to a good start and prepare the soil ahead of soybean
planting. Contact your Arrow Seed dealer for details.
