Grass Growth down by 38%

Grazing grass paddock growth rates are running at approx. 35-40 Kg (July average should be 55-60 kgdm/day).The rain is going to make a difference to this al being well

The rainfall should now signal the time to start looking at reseeding and planning which fields need work on, also now is the time to look at pasture renovation as soils are warm and grass growth is slowing down a little enabling the new grass’s to establish themselves, don’t forget Agscope supplies John Watson and BSH seeds.
