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 seedbed.
- If weeds are present at planting, consider applying glyphosate before or after planting if drilled, but before crop emergence to control existing weeds. Do not apply glyphosate after planting if crop is broadcasted and not incorporated.
- The Producer can be grazed as soon as there is adequate growth to support livestock. There are no nutritional concerns at any point during the fall or winter.
- All species in the blend will winterkill, so termination is not necessary.
- Some residue will be gained from this blend, but not too much to prevent effective no-tilling.
- Follow normal tillage plans for following crops.
