nematode control for the vineyard and garden
46 Grain Company offers a variety of high quality seeds that make great cover crops for vineyards and gardens.
In fact, information from the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension explains how using cereal grains like Elbon Rye can help manage and control nematode infestations in vineyards and gardens:
“Cereal rye has proven to be the fastest growing, most cold-tolerant annual grass available. You can plant cereal rye in late fall and have a thick mat of grass about 10 to 15 inches high in late winter. This grass should be shredded with a lawnmower or flexible string trimmer and tilled into the soil so decomposition can occur before you plant in the spring. Ideally shredding and tillage one month before planting will allow for adequate decomposition. There are many advantages of planting cereal rye in your garden: (1) it beautifies the area with greenery, and (2) it will add high levels of organic matter to the garden soil. This type of “green manure” crop decomposes rapidly. If these benefits were not enough, the roots of cereal rye serve as a trap-crop for nematodes. Once nematodes enter the cereal rye roots, they cannot escape and are doomed. When cereal rye decomposes, it releases organic acids which help reduce the alkalinity of garden soil. Gardeners should be careful to purchase cereal rye (Elbon) rather than annual rye. Annual rye is used to over-seed lawns and should not be used in your vegetable garden.
