Dryland Pasture Seed Mix



Product Description

Dryland Pasture Seed Mix is designed for farm, ranch and range where no irrigation is present. It grows on annual precipitation in most areas of the United States. It will grow on a minimum of 10″ annual rainfall. If some sprinkler or flood irrigation is present or annual precipitation averages 11-13 inches, yield will improved. We have selected species that persist and perform well in drought and provide good forage.

Dryland Pasture Mix provides excellent forage. In areas of 12+ inches of annual precipitation it has been and bailed at least once annually. In the fall and winter it can be grazed as pasture. It is an excellent dual-purpose product adapted to a wide range of dryland ecosystems. It is efficient and multi-purpose.

Dryland Pasture Seed Mix is also effective for disturbed sites, restoration and weed control. It will compete well with weeds, especially when it is sown in late summer or fall, giving it the upper hand against weedy spring annuals.

You will achieve best results by drill seeding, but broadcast seeding is the most common method. Take care to plant no deeper than .25″. Soil is best prepared with some form of light disturbance such as a spike-tooth harrow. Methods will vary from sit to site and will depend upon your equipment.

If your seeding is kept wet, especially during germination and establishment stages, pasture mix can be sown any time of year. If you are supplementing annual precipitation and your water is scarce or comes at specific times of year, the best planting time is late fall (September-October). Seed will lay dormant until spring in late fall planting scenarios. As with all of our grass mixes, plant no deeper than 1/4″
