Holbrook Landcare is looking for expressions of interest for participants in a pasture renovation focus group. Having done your soil tests many of you are probably thinking of doing some pasture renovation at some point and if there is enough interest HLN is proposing to set up a focus group to follow through the process of pasture renovation. The group would likely meet 3 times throughout the season to look at different aspects of establishing a pasture and be supported by Ashley Paech from HLN, a NSW DPI agronomist and other guest speakers on specific topics. Proposed sessions would include:
- Pre-sowing (March/April) – Covering paddock prep, pasture selection, spray application, fertilisers, sowing technique etc.
- Mid-winter (July/August) – weed control, fertilisers, nitrogen, general trouble shooting and planning for next year.
- Spring (September/October) – grazing management, managing for persistence and preparing for next year.
If you are interested in being involved contact Ashley at [email protected] or give him a call at the office.
