There is still time to apply fertilizer to tall fescue and smooth bromegrass meadows and pastures. The amount and timing of application depends on several factors. Read about those factors and other consideration in this article.
Soil testing can be done in either spring or fall on hay fields and pasture. Soil sampling on a regular basis (every 3 – 4 years) can save money and reduce environmental impacts of overapplying fertilizer or manure.
Fall is an excellent time to perform soil testing of pastures and hayfields. Testing in the fall allows more time for any needed lime applications before the main growing season and allows flexibility for planning fertilizer applications.
This past year was challenging for brome producers throughout eastern Kansas. Many producers have reported partial or total loss of their brome stands. What are the best options for these fields with spring just a couple months away?
The fall of 2021 was hard for brome growers. Decisions will need to be made about whether to replant or wait and hope for regrowth. When considering the best weed control option, this article offers recommendations for brome fields.
Soil testing can be done in either spring or fall on hayfields and pastures. Fall soil testing allows more time for any needed lime applications to have an effect before the main growing season begins, and it gives the producer some flexibility for planning nutrient applications. With high fertilizer prices, accurate soil tests are even more important to help save on input costs.
Knowing the soil nutrients is a requirement to establish an adequate soil fertility program for forages. Fall is a good time to evaluate the soil fertility status for forage production because it allows more time for any needed lime applications to have an effect before the main growing season begins.
