    Drought Resistant Horse Pasture Seeds must provide:

    • High content of deep rooting species
    • A long grazing season
    • Better forage diversity
    • Excellent recovery from grazing
    • Superior mineral intake than from ryegrass alone

    Our drought resistant mixture is specifically formulated with known deep rooting forage species to provide reliable grazing on areas which can sometimes suffer from grass burn up during summer months or poor regrowth over extended periods of low rainfall.

    Meadowgrass together with very deep rooting Cocksfoot and Tall Fescue give this permanent horse pasture mixture the edge when it comes to providing quality early and mid season grazing. This blend may be used to establish a new grazing pasture or can be overseeded (ideally in early spring or autumn) into an existing, thin/sparse grass sward at 10.00 kg per acre.

    Equine Pasture For Dry Soil may also be used to create, over-seed or repair grazing of Alpaca, Llama, Donkey or pony paddocks on sandy, light, free draining or shallow soil.

    SOWING INSTRUCTIONS

    • The area/s to be sown should be cultivated to produce a firm, weed free seedbed clear of large stones, roots and any other loose debris.
    • Harrow or rake over the surface to create a thin layer of fine, loose soil (tilth) approximately 10- 25mm (1/2” – 1”) deep.
    • Evenly machine broadcast the horse pasture seeds at 14.00 kg per acre (35.00 kg per hectare 3.5 grams per square metre).
      Please allow double the seeding rate if sowing by hand.
    • After sowing, gently work the applied seeds into the loose tilth a little with a light harrow or firm rake.
    • Finally, use a light weight (for clay ground) to medium weight (free draining ground) flat roller to squeeze the seeds and tilth down into the prepared seedbed.
    • This method ensures the horse pasture seeds are evenly spread, set at different depths and in good contact with the soil. All of the above helps to anchor the seeds in to position (so as not to float away during heavy or persistent rainfall) and to maintain persistent soil to seed moisture transfer for more even germination.Grass seeds may also be surface sown however, germination may be uneven and significantly slower particularly during periods of prolonged sunny, dry or windy weather even with regular irrigation
