Short Term Overseeding Grass Seed Mixture
10kg / acre pack
Our short term over seeding mixture is a simple but effective way to rejuvenate old or damaged grass leys without the cost of a complete reseed
Mixture of Hunter Tetraploid IRG; Kigezi 1 Tetraploid IRG
Overseeding is a simple but effective way to rejuvenate old or damaged grass leys, without the cost implications associated with a complete reseed. Overseeding can also be more efficient and reduces the amount of time that home-grown grass forage is out of production.
Timing is imperative with overseeding and the main aim is to minimise competition from the existing sward.
The best time to overseed is March, April, July or September as the grasses are not growing as vigorously as they are in May and June.
In addition to this, careful consideration needs to be given when choosing where to overseed, an open sward is needed, as a thick old “feggy” sward will be very hard to open out to allow the seeds to reach the soil.
Benefits of overseeding:
Improves DM yields
Increases overall D value
Improves crude protein, ME and sugar contents
Improves disease resistance
Improves ground cover
This mix is perfect for rejuvenating existing leys which may be lacking in yield and quality – for a further two years.
