PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS Soil Analysis and Fertilization Soil fertility and pH will dramatically influence the quantity and quality of forage produced on plots. Soil samples should be taken to determine lime and fertilizer needs. To ensure maximum production, a soil analysis should be taken when plots are first established to determine general site characteristics. Soil sample kits and soil analysis are available from the State Cooperative Extension Service. Contact your local county agent for assistance. Once initial fertilization and liming needs are determined, soils should be treated annually. if soil testing is not possible, use this rule the thumb: plots should be limed every 3 years at the rate of 2 tons per acre, and fertilized appropriately for the crop being planted. Planting Instructions Plant 100 pounds per acre for maximum forage productionWell drained soilPlots should have adequete sunlightsoil test for lime and fertilizer requirementsPrepare soil by disking under plant growth and leave follow to store moisture at least two weeks prior to plantingPlanting from September 1 - October 15 with adequate moistureFertilize and lime according to soil test. In the absence of soil test, apply 400 lbs od 13-13-13 per acre yearly and use 2 tons of lime every 3rd yearPrepare soil prior to planting to smooth seedbedCover seed with light disc of narrow in top 1/2 inch of soil followed by cultipacking seedbedTo provide more forage and cover for wildlife, fertilize again in early March. This will extend usage by providing forage through early summer for wildlifeLundy Special: Apply 400 lbs of 13-13-13 per acre when planting. and then each year apply 200 lbs. of 0-20-20 in early February and again in early September, Lime according to soil test.
