New to me pasture

Postby rjbovine » Wed Mar 14, 2018 9:51 pm

Picked up 5 ac. looking forward to turning it around . Needs some TLC . Fescue , weeds and a few Multflora rose . Think I'll bushhog close ,asap .Then give a good dose of fertilizer .( 75-46-90 ) Not sure about spraying, that's what it needs . But the field is at the edge of town . Any other recommendations . What could I plant in the fescue to add tonnage . The fescue stand is thin , I'm sure the fertilizer will help . Thanks for reading .rj

Ideally, you would have frost seeded in some clovers last month.

Will your fertilizer supplier mix weed killer with it, if they can, it would save spraying , or at least get it under control enough to spot spray . It's not legal everywhere .
