Rye-hairy vetch rotation cover crop methodYoungchun Oh, Damyang, Jeonnam, persimmon 17 ac, 9 years of organic
Mr. Oh plants rye 3 years and sows hairy vetch seeds the next year for nitrogen. He gives 5 kg of organic compost per tree. Roots of rye penetrate 1 meter into the soil. There's no need to till. Oxygen reaches the tree roots and the trees are healthy. Soil is soft like sponge and 1-meter rod goes in the soil.
 
If you sow hairy vetch, it will continue to seed and sprout for three years; they'll grow in between the rye. This method alone can produce huge-sized fruits. Poor soil has become so alive, that it not produces 400 gram persimmon.
