Boost can be no-tilled or broadcast over existing pastures in the fall or early spring. It is best to graze or mow pasture short, then overseed 10-20 pounds of seed per acre. Pulling a drag or harrow will help the seed filter through the existing vegetation to reach the soil. New pastures: In a prepared seedbed, drill no more than 1/2 inch deep, or broadcast and harrow, 20-30 pounds per seed acre. Roll to provide good seed/soil contact.
• Always take a soil test and consult your local extension service or fertilizer dealer for specific recommendations.
• Sowing: depending on the results of the soil test, a complete fertilizer such as 16-16-16 is helpful for establishment.
• Correct soil acidity, best between 5.5 and 7.
• A minimum of 20-30 units of nitrogen after each grazing or cutting will maximize forage production.
• Graze lightly when grass reaches 6 inches.
• Never graze below 3 inches.
• Short intensive grazing is ideal.
• Avoid grazing when frozen.
• Never cut below 3 inches.
• Highest quality is at vegetative maturity.
• Optimum level of yield to quality ratio will usually maximize at boot stage.
