Have You Considered Frost Seeding?

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

Now is a perfect time to think about dormant seeding your pastures with a legume. Dormant seed or frost seeding is accomplished by broadcasting seed across the frozen ground. The natural heaving of the soils in the winter works the seed into the soil. When temperatures warm up the seed will germinate and begin growing. In the past, the most prominent legume specie used in frost seeding was red clover. Recently Grassland Oregon has introduced Frosty Berseem Clover and FIXatioN Balansa Clover, both of which can also be sown in this manner. More

The Search for a Winter-Hardy and Economical Forage Solution

Thursday, August 28, 2014

No one has forgotten last year’s polar vortex, least of all the farmers and ranchers who weathered it. We couldn’t have predicted the brutally low temperatures that much of the US experienced this past winter, but it was in anticipation of conditions like these that we tried to breed a forage variety that would be hardy and resilient enough to survive them. If one believes the weather predictions for the coming winter, it seems we succeeded just in time.  Our FIXatioN Balansa clover has a rosette growth habit that hugs the ground helping it to withstand below-freezing temperatures. Even after a harsh winter, Balansa clover will aggressively produce forage in the spring, providing a plentiful source of high crude protein for deer (which means bigger racks!) and waterfowl.   More
