Forage Timely Tips: February

  • Continue grazing stockpiled tall fescue if available.
  • Assess grass stands. If thin, consider frost seeding clover (6-8 lb/A red + 1-2 lb/A ladino white clover).
  • On pastures with lower fertility, consider adding 10-15 lb/A annual lespedeza with the clover seed.
  • Consider applying nitrogen at first green-up to promote early growth.
  • Sign up for shared use drills for spring renovation.
  • Service and calibrate no-till drills.
  • Apply lime and fertilizer according to soil test.
