Elbon or cereal rye is an excellent grass to plant in the fall. It will germinate fast, grow quickly and indeed help build the soil. It is a cool season grass so plan to plant something else in the spring. If you broadcast a thin layer of compost (1/4') it and any other grass will sprout more quickly and evenly as well as establish faster.
