IS IT TIME TO RESTORE OR COMPLETELY RENOVATE?

Restoration and renovation are two approaches to increasing pasture productivity. If weeds have gone unchecked, it’s probably best to take a hardier approach to your pasture management to rebuild grass stands. This can often be the case in newly purchased pastures that haven’t been utilized in years or have suffered from mismanagement. In this scenario, controlling aggressive weeds with a long-lasting herbicide, such as DuraCor® herbicide, can help reset the pasture and speed up the turnaround. Renovating a pasture may also require reseeding with a diverse, high-quality forage mix to prevent weeds from reestablishing. Sound grazing management before, during and after renovation is a must for long-term success.

From time to time, pastures need of a little TLC. The best way to do this is to apply fertilizer according to soil test, remove weeds and brush early, reduce stocking rates, and improve animal distribution and movement across pastures. Staying ahead of arising issues can prevent a pasture restoration from becoming a pasture renovation.
