Summer sowing pastures – plan now for next season!
4 AugBy atadmin
Summer sowing pasture is a new technique designed to use nature to soften hard seed and pods of some pasture varieties. This method has been devised by Dr Brad Nutt and Dr Angelo Loi from DAFWA Pasture Division. This means that pasture sowing can take place in January/February at a time when there is less pressure compared to the normal sowing window. It can also be used at an opportunity to prepare seeding equipment, again at a time that is less stressful to the operator.
