Managing Your Pasture

p1

Sustain Your Pasture during Drought

For a horse or cattle owner, a prolonged dry spell can be your worst nightmare. Drought makes pasture plants more sensitive to the effects of overgrazing and trampling hooves besides limiting a pasture’s forage output. Lack of rain can also lead to an increase of weeds that compete with desired grasses, which some may be toxic to animals.

Pasture plants’ root systems are key to helping the pasture survive stress from drought and grazing and are also essential for erosion control and soil stability. Root growth depends on photosynthesis; if your pasture grasses are clipped too heavily by grazing animals then it is going to take longer to recover from dry weather. Try to avoid overgrazing and when the rains do return, resist the temptation to graze the drought-impacted plants until a full recovery is present.

Even after it rains and plants green up, the pasture needs some time for the roots to recover and if you graze too soon you will prolong the recovery period or even make recovery impossible. Warner Brothers Seed Company is dedicated to providing quality planting seed for pasture improvement. For more information visit our website or call 800-467-7250.

Being Environmentally Conscious- Watering Efficiently

p2

Avoid Water Waste

The easiest way to waste water is by watering too often. Not only is overwatering bad for the environment but it can negatively affect the growth of your grass. Here are some tips to help you water your landscape more efficiently.

The ideal times to water your grass is before 10 am or after 6 pm. This is because the temperature is cooler so the chance of quick evaporation is lowered.

It is also recommended to water your landscape twice a week. Watering thoroughly twice a week can help roots grow deeper making them drought tolerant.

Watering about an inch of water per week, or a little more during especially hot seasons, is more than sufficient.

Benefits of Using a Custom Seed Blend for Your Land

P2

Custom Seed Blend

Many grasses are suited for grazing whereas others are strong enough for hay production and intense management. When your land needs an all-in-one variety, creating a custom blend is the way to achieve that. The benefits of a mixture is that one species offers its adaptation to the other, making it a more well-rounded plant. This will often extend the grazing season because each species varies when it comes to lush growth and dormancy. The blend is more appealing to livestock who prefer a varied diet.
