- Winter temperatures can cause pasture growthrates to drop to very low levels
0-15 kg DM/ha/day
- Long-term phosphate trials have shown itspositive effect on winter production³ 1 kg P/ha grew 1.7 t DM/ha 15 kg P/ha grew 2.8 t DM/ha
- Balance & Grow with nitrogen and gibberellic acid are “get out of jail” cards when short of winter feed
- Growth stimulation can be seen as early as seven days after application
Of all the factors that influence winter pasture growth, low temperatures generally have the greatest impact, and can lead to winter feed-gaps.
Developing a strategy that manages feed supply and stock demand is critical.
Building a feed-wedge will provide more pasture than stock can consume during late summer and into autumn, providing a bank of feed for winter consumption.
BioAg’s winter pasture production methodology incorporates specific and key conventional inputs, and introduces improved pasture quality and balance to production by incorporation of biostimulant foliars and natural long lasting sources of nutrients.
