Cereal Rye or Rye Corn is a winter-spring cereal that has the ability to withstand adverse weather conditions compared to other cereal crops. It’s able to handle cold and limited waterlogging, most importantly it’s drought resistance and ability to withstand sand blast enables it to produce a soil-binding cover on land where other cereals won’t grow. This ability to control soil erosion, provide rapid spring growth, suppression of weeds and providing forage or grain for harvest makes Rye Corn an attractive addition to a crop rotation.
