Clean & firm so that you do not sink more than 1/2″ with your boot. Good seed to soil contact is essential to maintain proper moisture for germination.
Choose ideal season & conditions. Depending on what you are planting, choose the proper time to allow your seed the best chance to thrive. Keep an eye on future weather forecasts.
Drill, no-till, broadcast, frost seed, dormant. Use the planting method which works best for your operation and situation.
Fertilizer, weed control, grazing & mechanical pressure.
It is important to manage and maintain your new seeding so that plants will establish and take root so that animals will not pull them out in a too early in grazing situations. Follow soil test recommendations on fertilizer requirements and follow labels on using herbicides on weeds. Clipping weeds is also an option.
