Conservation Reserve Mix (CRP) is a mix of native grasses and wildflowers includes species, such a Little Bluestem and Black-eyed Susan, that have proven to be the best performers in establishing successful restorative plantings. The native warm season grass has a higher percentage by weight in the mix to give a good balance of grasses and wildflowers. Generally, the wildflowers will establish first and continue to fill in over time. If the wildflower content is too high, they can inhibit establishment of grasses. The grasses take longer to establish and this mix seems to yield a good balance.

Experience has shown that the best time to seed in February, March and April. Earlier seeding seems to work best so plants can get a jump on weeds such as crabgrass. Make sure your drill or drilling techniques can plant the seed at 1/16 to 1/18 of an inch in depth. The drill or drilling techniques should also include press wheels or cultipacker to push seed into the soil and firm the seed bed. Soil cover and firmness over seed is critical to getting the grasses to establish. It is not as critical to get firmed soil over the wildflowers as it is the grasses. With proper planting techniques and timing, this mix is especially designed for hardy growth.
