FORAGE TIMELY TIPS FOR FEBRUARY

Continue grazing stockpiled tall fescue if available.

Assess grass stands. If thin, consider adding legumes.

Begin frost seeding with at least 6-8 lb/A red and 1-2 lb/A white clover on closely grazed pastures.

On pastures with lower fertility, consider adding 10-15 lb/A annual lespedeza to the above recommendation.

Consider applying nitrogen in late February on some pastures 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 if not during fall.
