Giant Spurry

I would like information about spurry. How much frost will it stand?

What is time for sowing? Its value as crop to plow under?

From a California point of view, spurry is a winter-growing weed which

has been approved by orchardists in Sonoma county because it yields a

considerable amount of vegetation for turning under with the spring

plowing of the orchard. For this purpose it should be sown at the

beginning of the rainy season. Its value as a crop to turn under depends

upon the amount of growth you can get. It is not a legume and,

therefore, does not have the value of the nitrogen-gathering plant.

Still, it yields humus and, therefore, is valuable for winter growing as

ordinary weeds, grasses, grains, etc., are.
