I've never planted chicory before, but want to give it a try to add a little diversity to my plots. I've had good luck using winter rye as a nurse for my clover plots and my intention is to use it as a nurse crop for my clover and chicory this fall in a 1/2 acre plot I started this spring in forage oats. I did some searching online and got mixed opinions about using the rye with chicory. So, I am looking for input from those who have used winter rye as a nurse crop for a clover/chicory mix. Thanks in advance for any experiences you care to share.
