KingFisher Premium Pasture Blend
Using KingFisher Premium Pasture Blend on your farm is a smart move. They’re versatile and more forgiving to adverse soil and climate conditions than monocultures. KingFisher Premium Pasture Blend usually provides better nutrition and yield across the growing season. However, pastures need good management to be able to optimize the potential. Regular mowing and fertilizing are just as important as rotational grazing in maintaining a proper pasture balance.
An early fall planting is best seeding or drilled 1/4 inch deep into a well-prepared seed bed. If a seeder or drill is not available, the seed can be broadcast and rolled firm with a cultipacker. Make sure weeds are controlled before establishment. Spring planting is possible, but competition must be suppressed. Most of the upper Midwest is Spring planted.
Use the equivalent of about 40 pounds of N to kick-start the seedlings. Clip the pasture when the seedlings are about 6 to 8 inches high to encourage density. Do not graze until firmly rooted. Rotational grazing is best to promote persistence. Manure or fertilizer in the fall will help with winterhardiness.
Organic seeds are grown by certified organic growers that adhere to the strict organic practices required by the Organic Food Production Act of 1990. No chemical fertilizer, pesticides, insecticides, fungicides, or herbicides are allowed in the production of this seed. Genetic purity is maintained throughout the production, processing, and packaging of this seed. The organic certificate is available upon request.
