Niger

Guizotia abyssinica

 

Niger establishes itself quickly and grows well as a summer catch crop and flowering plant. In addition to pure sowing, niger has been a favoured component of many flower and catch crop mixtures for a variety of reasons, primarily because it has no effect on crop rotations and has comparatively low water and nutrient requirements. These characteristics are particularly welcome in with rapid crop rotations and excess soil nutrients. Closely related to sunflowers, niger handles drought and high summer temperatures very well. Niger is very reliably winterkilled.
