Frosty is an ideal nitrogen fixing cover crop in the south because of its growth habit and timing. It produces early season biomass that makes it highly attractive as a cover crop in rotation with corn and cotton in the southeast US North of Tennessee;

Frosty may winterkill and as a result should only be used in cover crop applications where winterkill is acceptable or desired.
