Seeding Rates, Dates and Depths for Common Missouri Forages
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The first step in forage management is the proper establishment of pasture and hay fields. This in turn depends on proper seeding. If the seeding rate is too low, the stand will be thin and weedy. If it is too high, establishment costs will be prohibitive. If the seeding rate is ideal, stands can still fail by planting at improper depths or times. This guide presents rates, depths and dates for seeding common Missouri forages. The tables in this guide contain annuals, perennials, and biennials, as well as grasses and legumes. This information is based on research and professional experience in Missouri and, when appropriate, from surrounding states.
