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.

- 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.
