Although farming is facing many uncertainties at the moment, this is an opportune time to upgrade those old and poached fields and give them a new lease of life. A devastating spring and a drought driven summer has led to many fields being damaged to such a state that reseeding is the only option.
This month we will look at the farm of Pierce Breen, Pallasgreen. For the last couple of years Pierce has been of the mind-set that the farm needed to be refreshed and upgraded, and reseeding has certainly delivered for him. This year another 8 acres is getting the treatment of which we will be following the progress throughout the summer.
Pierce intends to use the field for mainly grazing with typically one cut taken per year when the paddock goes strong. As a result of this he is using the Gold Assure No.3 Extend mix. To see the Gold Assure grass seed range Click Here.
We look forward to following the progress of this reseed throughout the season as the next step will be spraying for post emergence weeds. For more information on reseeding or grassland weed control contact your Area Sales Manager or Liam Cronin B.Agr.Sc, Grassland Specialist on 022-31644.
