Pasture Recovery after Flooding

After the recent flooding, IPF Technical Agronomist Lee Menhenett discusses some timely guidelines to help farmers and agronomists make informed decisions about their flood effected pastures. Covering what happens to pasture during a flooding event, how and when to assess potential damage and some strategies and actions to ensure pastures fully recover.

View Insight

Know where you stand with your soil

By regularly testing your soil, you will become aware of what factors may be limiting your pasture production. Achieve the best results by addressing any deficiencies.

Spread early and stay one step ahead

There are a number of benefits associated with being a step or two ahead when it comes to the timing of your fertiliser application.

Read more

Get productive with P

Phosphorus (P) is key in pasture production. Be sure to make regular deposits – the sooner it’s applied, the sooner you’ll see the benefits.

Read more

Set up with essential S

Sulphur (S) is an essential plant nutrient and important for legume-based pastures. It has been long recognised that sulphate S is effective in supplying S to pastures.

Read more

Keep an eye on your K levels

Potassium (K) is often required by pastures, particularly where hay and silage has been removed, on light sandy soils, in high rainfall areas and on granite-based soils.

Ask yourself: is this the moment for Moly?

Trace elements play a critical role in helping to maintain a productive, sustainable pasture system. They can also help with maintaining stock health and fertility.

Read more

Go the extra mile with trace elements

Molybdenum may allow you to enhance pasture production using free nitrogen (N). If it has been five years or more since you last applied moly, consider it in your fertiliser program.

Read more

Plan for your pasture establishment

Better establishment means faster pasture growth, less weed competition and a longer period before renovating or re-planting.

Read more

Look to blends for better investment

Sometimes SuPerfect® application every year is not the best plan for every paddock. Strategic use of SuPerfect®/MOP blends may be a better investment.

Read more

Fill the winter feed gap

Winter is usually when we face our biggest feed deficits in pasture systems. Nitrogen can be used strategically to assist in growing additional dry matter above normal growth rates.
