Oversowing and pasture

Ed has been direct drilling oats, wheat, beans and vetch into existing permanent pasture to grow a crop for early grazing while allowing the existing pasture to have a boost with the biodiversity.

He would like to test how different varieties and combinations, along with mob grazing, impact on plant growth, dry matter tonnage and weed control.

If would like to join Ed and explore this idea further, get in touch.
