Frost seeding for pastures and hay fields

-A A +A
By Levi Berg

Yes, I know. I have written about frost seeding once this year, but I wanted to share this information again. Grasses and legumes start to thin throughout the years and causes a decrease in forage production.
A technique called “frost seeding” is a great way to increase your pasture and hay field production without completely renovating your pastures and hay fields.
Frost seeding is when seed is broadcast onto the ground between Feb. 10 and March 1, and as the ground freezes and thaws, the seeds are worked into the ground and germinate in the spring.
