How To Grow Good seed to soil contact is required for any successful seeding. Begin with a finely prepared seedbed that is as free of weeds/debris as possible and firm with a stiff rake or roller. Sow fall rye at 2.5 cm (1") depth from early September through to mid to late October (even early November in southern areas). When using fall rye as a green manure, it should be worked into the soil at or before 12.5 cm (5") in height. If left to grow taller before working in, the process can become much harder and results can be disappointing.
