      Sowing Instructions      Cultivate to achieve a fine, firm seed bed. Ploughing will help level rough fields. Sow in good conditions (warm with rain forecast), no deeper than 10-15mm. 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 (<1200 kg DM/ha) to assist in tillering and help create a dense sward.
