Usage Guide – Horse Mixture

Sowing rate      14 kg / acre (35 kg/ha)

Sowing Time     April – September

Sowing Depth   10 -15 mm

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 advised approx. 5-6 weeks after establishment, prior to 1st grazing provided herbs are not sown in the mixture. If the mixture containing herbs is sown, weed control should take place before reseeding.

                        If possible, use sheep or cattle to graze sward initially as this will help tiller out the sward and create a denser sward.

Suitable for a hay crop if desired.
