Description:
Good planning is the key for successful forage stand establishment, and the planning needs to be made at least one year ahead. Forage and pasture improvement depends upon successful stand establishment and management. Healthy, thick, and vigorous stands are essential for high forage yields and quality. To obtain maximum benefits and yield, seeding at the right time is another key factor. Ideal seedbed preparation and close watch of weather patterns are important for successful establishment of highly productive forage stands. These offer unique opportunities for improving forage productivity, quality, and profitability. Additionally, site selection, species and variety selection, planting method, fertilization, liming, and weed management are also important factors to be considered. It is therefore essential to know all key factors responsible for a successful forage stand establishment.
