Capello

Woolly Pod Vetch
Vicia villosa ssp. dasycarpa

CAPELLO woolly pod vetch was derived from selections out of Namoi woolly pod vetch. It demonstrates mid maturity along with a semi-erect growth habit.

CAPELLO is suited to a wide range of soil types, performing better on lighter soil types, compared to other vetch species.

CAPELLO can provide growers with a soft seeded alternative to traditional hard seeded woolly pod vetch varieties, which can cause problems in future legume crops due to regeneration from the hard seed. This makes CAPELLO well suited to short term cropping rotations whilst providing the added benefits of moderate drought tolerance and being a highly efficient and effective soil nitrogen producer. Mature plants form a dense canopy, providing strong weed competition. CAPELLO is ideal as a break crop and is well suited for hay production or turned in as green manure crop to improve soil health.
