Overseeding using the correct mixtures and machinery designed for the job is now accepted as good practice to both maintain the physical and nutritional quality of medium and long term swards.
When the sward becomes open allowing weeds and unsown species to invade, overseeding will quickly check this and maintain the productivity by increasing both yield and quality.
The loss of 1 tonne DM/ha @ 11MJ/ kg DM equates to 11000 MJ/ha = more than 2000 litres milk/ha for the dairy farmer.
Overseeding a sward with the correct ForFarmers Leybooster overseeding mixture will help maintain production beyond its expected life.
Overseeding reduces weed grass ingress, which increases over time.
