This mixture provides both cover (kale) and feed (quinoa). Fast-growing phacelia is included in a small quantity to act as a nurse crop. It is an attractive mixture and hosts many insects, which are a good source of high protein feed for game bird chicks.

Bugs & Beasts
Phacelia gives some protection against pigeon attack, but flea beetle can sometimes be a problem - at the first sign, see your advisor.
Use a stale seedbed - very limited chemical weed control available, and will likely kill the phacelia if post-emergence.
Not usually a problem.
