It’s not the best time, but use these steps to seed forage crops

-A A +A

I could bet around March, I can always count of at least 20 to 30 calls asking about seeding forages for livestock. 

However, the best time to seed cool season grasses and many legumes is actually in the fall. 

Each grass or legume species has different specifications for planting depth, seeding date and seeding rate, but the first step to a great stand is a soil test. 

Remember the Henry County Extension Office offers 10 free samples to residents of Henry County, and tests usually take between one to two weeks to return.
