late season planting

I have and offer from the farmer of our lease to plant whater we want instead of his typical winter wheat. it will be a last week of sept or first week of oct plant. it can be any size we want up to 65acres. Obviously that would be alot of money. He will be drilling it. Just like he does winter wheat. Any recomendations? I need to confirm what residual herbeside could be in the soil and its affects.

Brassicas will work, but would be nice to get them in in September. Same goes for the cereal grains like wheat, oats, triticale, etc. Wheat will work better as it is more cold hardy than oats are. Maybe, if the herbicide isn't wrong, you can have him plant a perennial and annual clover mix and add some wheat to it. The clover will pop in the spring and the wheat will add to the draw over the winter.
