    Agronomy Guidelines
    Paddock preparationsCan be direct drilled or sown into cultivated seedbed. Can be over sown into existing pasture sward. Cultivate seed bed if ground is uneven.
    Sowing depthShallow (10-15mm), using a roller will ensure good seed-soil contact and improve germination rates.
    Weed controlA weed free seedbed allows for better establishment results. The use of herbicides prior to sowing can alleviate competition from weeds. Speak to your local agronomist for herbicide recommendations.
    FertiliserThe use of fertiliser at sowing may improve the establishment. The use of phosphorus fertiliser annually may improve the longevity of the stand.
    Grazing managementPasture should not be grazed until adequately anchored (cannot not be pulled out easily). Ryegrass is better suited to rotational grazing. Allow plants to re-grow to 2.5-3 leaf stage before grazing again.
