Sowing rate: 14 kg/acre (35 kg/ha)
Sowing time: April-September (first week)
Sowing depth: 10-15 mm
Sowing instructions: Cultivate to achieve a fine, firm seedbed. Ploughing will help level rough fields. Sow in good conditions (warm with rain forecast), no deeper than 10-15 mm. Roll well after sowing to ensure good soil/seed contact. Apply N, P & K as per soil test results and nitrates rules.
After sowing: Monitor for pest attack and take immediate action where necessary. Post-emergence weed spray is essential approx. 5-6 weeks after establishment, prior to first grazing. Where clover is included in the sown mixture, use a clover-safe spray.
Grazing: Graze the new reseeds frequently and at low covers (<1,200 kg DM/ha) to assist in tillering and help create a dense sward.
