Common Vetch

Common vetch not only excels as a winter cover crop, it also does well during the spring to provide weed suppression and provide high amounts of nitrogen to cash crops. The taproot of common vetch can reach depths of 3 to 5 feet and is better adapted to well-drained soils. Unlike hairy vetch, common vetch is not hard seeded and is less likely to become a weed problem. When utilized in a mixture, the speedy decomposition of common vetch will lower the overall C:N ratio of mixes that include it.
