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 @ 32 oz/acre before or after planting but before crop emergence to control existing weeds.

*Always read and follow label instructions before making an application.

Management

  • 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 plan for the following crops.
