  • DENTIFY paddocks/fields with poor yield performance and low perennial ryegrass (less than 50%)TIMING Target a time of year with warm and moist conditions
  • SPRAY OFF OLD SWARD with glyphosate at 2l per acre (5l/ha)
  • DO A SOIL TEST! Apply lime, phosphate and potash as recommended. Apply nitrogen up to 48 units per acre at or after sowing
  • SELECT A SUITABLE GRASS SEED MIXTURE WITH THE BEST VARIETIES and sow at 14 kg per acre (35 kg/ha). Increase seed rate in poor conditions
  • A FINE FIRM SEEDBED is essential regardless of cultivation method
