Detailed planting instructions:
Sow the seeds at the time and rate specified for each variety listed. All legumes should be planted 1/4 to 1/2" deep. For best results, till under when in the flowering stage. Planting rates are listed with the variety copy. Organic systems should plant 1/3 to 1/2 heavier to allow for some weed pressures.

Harvesting:
Take down plants just as the red tops begin to fade, but before the plants produce mature seeds. The easiest method is to slice plants off at the soil line with a sharp hoe. They can then be turned under or composted. Nitrogen nodules left behind in the soil add fertility.
