Fertility + Weed Control

  • If grazing is intended and soil fertility levels are low, consider applying 25-50 lbs/acre of nitrogen at planting to increase total biomass production.
  • Plant into a clean, weed-free seed.bed
  • If weeds are present at planting, consider applying Glyphosate @ 32 oz/acre before or after planting but before crop emergence to control existing weeds.

Management

  • Balanced Plus can be grazed as soon as there is adequate growth to support livestock.
  • There is little concern for grazing toxicity issues with only a small percentage of sorghum-sudangrass in the blend. To be most cautious, avoid grazing for 5-7 days following a killing frost.
  • All species in the blend will winterkill, so termination is not necessary.

Some residue will be gained from this mix, but not enough to prevent effective no-tilling. Follow the normal tillage plan for the following crops.
