Sow and allow to grow 45 to 60 days, the approximate time before flowering, then flail or mow and turn into soil as a green manure 2 to 3 weeks before planting crops. This is a natural organic approach to nematode control and is also less expensive than chemical applications. Sow Braco at rates of 6 to 8 oz per 1,000 sq feeto and 15 to 20 lbs per acre.
