Great Basin Economy Pasture Mix Performance:

Great Basin Economy Pasture Mix will perform best under sprinkler irrigation, but it can be flood irrigated once the seedlings have matured. It will survive on a minimum of 16″ annual rainfall if no irrigation is present. Livestock can be turned in for pasture or it can be cut for hay. For arid situations consider out Dryland Pasture Mix.

Sowing Recommendations:

If your seeding is kept wet, especially during germination and establishment stages, Great Basin Economy 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.

Best results are obtained when drilled lightly (no more that .25″), but broadcasting is the most common method of planting. The soil is best prepared with some sort of light disturbance such as a harrow. Preparation will vary from sit to site and will depend upon your equipment. Correct planting depth is crucial to success. Planting too deep will likely result in failure – Plant no deeper than 1/4″

Planting Rate:
16 lbs./acre drilled (1/4″ deep)
20 lbs./acre broadcast (1/4″ deep)
