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.
  • If undesired grass weeds emerge after crop emergence, consider applying Select Max @ 9-16 oz/acre when the grasses are 2-4” tall.

Management

  • Classic Trio can be grazed as soon as there is adequate growth to support livestock.
  • Due to high moisture and protein content of the mix, it is best to supplement grazing livestock with free-choice dry hay or straw to provide rumen fill and roughage in the diet.
  • All species in the blend should winterkill, so termination is not necessary.
  • Almost no residue will be gained from this blend, and it may even cause existing field residue to breakdown quicker.
  • Follow normal tillage plan for the following crops. No-tilling after Classic Trio is very effective due to the lack of residue produced.
