Research on interseeding of meadows



Research on interseeding of meadows



Research journal Wyoming Agricultural Experiment Station: (141) 165-175



Interseeding of improved legumes and grasses into hay meadows and pastures has a potential economic advantage over conventional methods. Studies were conducted to evaluate the optimum time interval between herbicide application and planting. Optimum planting dates were also evaluated. The John Deere Powr-till and Melroe 701 minimum-till drills were used. Preliminary cost determinations indicated the drill, tractor, and labor costs were lowest for the Melroe drill. This is primarily due to its lower energy requirement. Optimum seedling counts were observed when glyphosate was applied two weeks prior to the interseeding of a mountain meadow. A four week interval was optimum when legumes were seeded into a pasture. The highest initial tall fescue seedling counts with the Melrose drill were obtained when planted before green-up of the established sod. Tall fescue seedling counts with the John Deere drill were the highest with a broadcast application of glyphosate sprayed and planted soon after spring green-up. The establishment of alfalfa with the John Deere drill was variable across dates and spray treatments. Adequate alfalfa stands were not obtained with the Melroe drill.
