Organic Hard Red Spring Wheat - Cover Crop Grain Seeds
All Wheat is Not Equal We have had the experience of growing wheatgrass and being in the commercial wheatgrass business over the last twenty years. We have experienced growing many different kinds of wheat from different areas: Texas, Utah, Idaho, Montana, California, and Israel-- both organic and non-organic. The wheat we use now is grown in eastern Washington and is undoubtedly the best wheat we have ever used. It has a spectacular germination rate and makes a beautiful and nutritious grass. Our hard red spring wheat is USDA certified organic, which means the grower has not used herbicides in his field for over 3 years.
If a hard red spring wheat is organic, it will have more of a variety of minerals than a non-organic wheat. If you grow with an organic compost the organisms in the soil will help the minerals absorb into the grass properly. Organic produce should also have the organism on it that produces cobalamin (B-12).
