Sod-seeding into warm-season perennial pastures is a recommended practice to achieve spring grazing. Plant using a drill with the small seed box or broadcast with appropriate modifications for smaller seeds using a broadcast seeder. Clip existing pastures to a 2-inch stubble height before seeding into a prepared seedbed.
Arrowleaf produces high amounts of hard seed, making it an excellent reseeder if permitted. To allow reseeding, remove animals, or reduce stocking rates when it begins to flower.
Higher germination rates occur during cooler temperatures. During elevated temperatures, germination is considerably less than that of crimson clover. These cooler temperatures will still allow for sufficient germination, meaning late fall seeding could result in better stands with adequate moisture than spring seedings.
Seeding Depth: ¼” – ½”
