King’s AgriSeeds makes every effort to support our organic and sustainable customers with superior seed genetics, a full cover crop line, and technical agronomic expertise based on a wealth of experience specific to organic rotations. We want to give you these tools to help you build a strong, resilient rotation that can thrive without chemical inputs, while promoting effective land stewardship. We advocate longer, more complex and diverse rotations, which helps manage weeds, fertility and pests by adding a crop instead of a chemical.
We work closely with the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, local Soil and Water Conservation Districts, the No-till Alliance, and others to educate growers about soil health and conservation practices like planting year-round covers, buffers near waterways, proper manure management, minimizing tillage, and working perennial crops into their rotations.
The following is our organic lineup. (Many of our conventional products are also available untreated)
2700 Spring Triticale
King’s 2700 Forage Spring Triticale to plant in the spring or fall. It is a spring awned forage type that is somewhat facultative. This means that if fall-planted, it can potentially survive a moderate or temperate winter. It grows vigorously until the third or fourth tiller and then enters a stall phase of five to eight days before resuming very rapid stem elongation and vegetative growth. The plant has a tall, erect growth habit and exhibits a dense canopy of dark green leaves. Tolerance of disease and tough growing conditions is superior to many other spring forages. Recommended seeding rate: 125-150 lbs/A.
360 SB Soybean
Conventional 3.6 maturity bean with excellent yield potential. Has performed very well in Penn State. Recommended planting population: 140-175k.
A high quality purple flower forage pea with small seed size. Long vines can reach up to 60 inches. Can be planted in spring or fall. Recommended seeding rate: 80-100 lb/A.
AF 7101 Forage Sorghum
An early season gene 6 BMR forage sorghum with good standability and dry down. It is a little earlier than AF 7201 in maturity, but similar in plant height. It has very sweet stalks and is a good choice for boot stage or soft dough harvests. 82-85 days to soft dough stage. Recommended seeding rate: for direct harvest – 80K/A; for cut and wilt at boot stage – 25 lbs/A.
AS 9301 Sudangrass
A very exciting gene 6 BMR sudangrass that has get-up-and-go and extreme quality. AS 9301 dries easier than sorghum-sudangrass, which makes it an option for dry hay. Excellent for baleage, haylage, and dry hay. Recommended seeding rate: 25-30 lbs/A.
This new exclusive KingFisher hybrid is very quick growing and high yielding with a dry stalk for ease of drydown. Stems are finer and sweeter than many sorghum-sudans. The higher leaf to stem ratio ensures quality grazing or feed. Digestibility of this hybrid is increased due to the reduction in lignin from the BMR trait, increasing daily gains or milk production significantly. Recommended seeding rate: 40-50 lbs/A.
A small seeded buckwheat for cover crop programs. Excellent smother crop, quick summer growth for brief planting windows in the rotation. Recommended seeding rate: 25-35 lbs/A.
Pollanum Annual Ryegrass
A European Annual Ryegrass with less winter hardiness than some varieties. High dry matter yield in the first cut. Recommended seeding rate: 35-45 lb/A.
Trical 815 Triticale
Trical 815 is a leafy triticale that is ideally suited to high quality forage production for lactating dairy cows and finishing beef. Its leaf to stem ratio is
quite high. It is excellent at uptaking and assimilating large amounts of nitrogen, making it a top choice for managing manure waste nutrients over the winter. Recommended seeding rate: 100-150 lb/A.
VNS Winter Rye
A Canadian rye that is leafier and later than local rye. Recommended seeding rate: 168 lb/A.
A short lived, lower cost red clover. Red clover is more drought tolerant and productive than white clover, but not quite as high quality. Use some of each for grazing. Red clover is more tolerant of wet soils and lower pH than alfalfa. Recommended seeding rate: 4-20 lbs/A.
Organic Common Medium Red Clover is pre-inoculated with Rhizobium bacteria for best nitrogen fixation.
A new medium height, medium leaf size white clover that flowers early. Recommended seeding rate: 2-4 lbs/A.
Liflex is pre-inoculated with Rhizobium bacterium for best nitrogen fixation.
A single cut red clover that is best for cover cropping applications. It is a high biomass producer and excellent for nitrogen fixation. It is best planted as a cover crop. Mammoth is more vigorous and tolerant of acidic soils than other clovers, and can reach up to three feet in maturity. Recommended seeding rate: 4-20 lbs/A.
Mammoth is pre-inoculated with Rhizobium bacteria for best nitrogen fixation.
Milvus Red Clover
A new red clover that is long lived and has spreading tendencies. Recommended seeding rate: 4-20 lbs/A.
Milvus must be inoculated with clover inoculant for best nitrogen fixation.
A mixture of our best perennial clovers. Contains approximately 50% Freedom! Red Clover, 25% Alice White Clover and 25% Regalgraze Ladino Clover. Great for frost seeding, inter- seeding pastures and thinning alfalfa fields. Can also be used to complement many of our all grass mixtures. Recommended seeding rate: 4-6 lbs/A.
Premium Clover Mix is pre-inoculated with Rhizobium bacteria for best nitrogen fixation.
Renegade Red Clover
Renegade is an erect, early flowering, double-cut red clover with improved resistance to southern anthracnose and downy mildew. Renegade is classified as semi-dormant in winter growth habit, and provides more grazing than Ladino clover during hot summer months. Recommended seeding rate: 4-20 lbs/A.
Renegade is pre-inoculated with Rhizobium bacteria for best nitrogen fixation.
Rivendel White Clover
Trials show that small leaved white clover is most persistent in permanent pastures under grazing management. Rivendel is a small-leaved very persistent variety. It has short rhizomes and short leaf growth, which makes it suitable for both cattle and sheep farming as it tolerates close grazing and maintains a high proportion of clover in the sward. In several trails though out Europe, Rivendel has shown its excellent resistance against strong and cold winter conditions. It has a good distribution of DM yields throughout the season and years with high relative yields compared to the standard variety in 3rd. and following years. Recommended seeding rate: 2-5 lbs/A.
Rivendel is pre-inoculated with Rhizobium bacteria for best nitrogen fixation.
Good for cover crop use; not recommended for forage use. Deep tap root. Helps break up compacted soils. Recommended seeding rate: 15-25 lbs/A.
Yellow Blossom Sweetclover must be inoculated with an alfalfa/sweetclover type inoculant for best nitrogen fixation.
Perun is a tetraploid variety of festulolium, Italian ryegrass type but with better persistence. The yield is high with relatively high sugar contents. Perun is utilized for silage as pure crop or in mixture with other grasses like perennial ryegrass, tall fescue types of festulolium and red clover. In such mixtures, Perun participates with high dry matter yield – especially in the 1st and 2nd harvest year – with very good quality. Recommended seeding rate: 30-40 lbs/A.
Laura is an excellent long lived variety of meadow fescue that we have been using for several years. Excellent component of pasture and some hay mixes. Recommended seeding rate: 35-45 lbs/A.
Minto Meadow Fescue is an improved European variety. It is late heading with a wide cutting or grazing window. Minto has a high yield potential and great persistence. A top choice for pairing with a KingFisher alfalfa. Recommended seeding rate: 35-45 lb/A.
Niva is a late heading orchardgrass that seems to take lower fertility well and has few disease problems. We recommend Niva to be used in Pennsylvania and further north. Recommended seeding rate: 20-25 lbs/A.
