Pasture planted in January of 2019 ......fertilizer recommendation?

Asked February 18, 2020, 2:53 PM EST

Dry land seed blend from Helena ,has grown 1 summer. Last fall we put down Esplanade for cheat. What rate per acre w/ a 40-0-0? or something else? I want to give enough to keep it growing and might graze in the fall after seed set. looks like not a lot of east side info on pastures.

HI. Generally we do not fertilize dryland pastures. It really would depend upon your location and amount of precip you receive, if you were to try it. Unless you have planted a dryland seed mix on irrigated field... Please call me and we can talk some more about this.
