Productive Pasture

Over half the UK is down to grass. But is it productive? Ironically, it is in the areas that contain most livestock that some of the oldest and least productive grassland is to be found. Ian Wilkinson looks at a simple and effective way of improving tired or worn leys.

Drought Tolerant Overseeding Mixture 4-5 Year

Ref: MIXOSDT
Sowing rate: 9 kg per acre (22.5 kg/ha, 2.25 g/m²)

The requirement for drought tolerant mixtures in recent years has increased dramatically.  Ryegrasses alone can suffer to meet production needs on drier soils so we must look to  deep rooting species to supplement this shortfall.  By mixing hybrid ryegrass with cocksfoot and red clover this 4-5 year mixture will be largely self sufficient due to the clover content and produce far more in drier years than a ryegrass only mixture.

Herbal Overseeding Mixture

Ref: MIXHOS
Sowing rate: 6 kg per acre (15 kg/ha, 1.5 g/m²)

Deep rooting herbal leys are becoming more and more popular due to recent droughts.  There is also the increasing realisation that these diverse swards are more beneficial to livestock and are more sustainable than traditional ryegrass-based leys. Whilst sowing a herbal ley into a clean seedbed is preferable, this over-seeding mixture can be used to successfully convert existing pasture into a herbal ley.  

Ensure the existing pasture is cut or grazed tightly and that it is free of aggressive weeds or grasses. Care should be taken to open up the existing sward by harrowing or similar, providing access to the soil and space for the newly sown plants to establish.  This mix can then be broadcast or shallow drilled before rolling, several times if possible.
