    Applying a Cutting Ley Overseeding mixture is an economical way to quickly boost yields or extend the term of a tired or burnt up sward following damage caused by overgrazing, flooding, drought or extremely cold weather. The overseeding or ‘introduction’ of these grasses will reinstate a short term grass ley’s productivity.
    Should forage be urgently required for conservation this mixture may also be used to temporarily boost a grazing pastures yield for a year or two without incurring the expense or downtime of destroying pasture and establishing a specific short term, high yield ley.

    Cutting Ley Overseeding can be carried out during spring. late summer or early autumn into a short, open sward for minimum competition from existing grass.
    A fertiliser application may be made to significantly boost yield 3 to 4 weeks after germination. It is advisable not to fertilise too soon after sowing as this may encourage a sudden surge of growth from existing grasses which can potentially smother developing seedlings.
