Covercrop of the year?

Ryecorn in Blewitt Springs.




This Ryecorn is flowering. The grower plans to roll the cover crop to create a weed suppressing mat.


Unfortunately, there are some human side effects. Shortly after taking this photograph and walking through the crop, I was temporarily blinded by an allergic reaction. Ironic.
