Managing autumn reseeds

Teagasc Researcher Dr Philip Creighton joins Ciarán Lynch on this week's episode of OviCast, Teagasc Sheep Podcast to discuss management of autumn reseeds.

Philip starts by discussing current conditions and the limitations of late reseed being established in September.  He then moves on to discuss grazing management, opening covers and residuals as well as management during the current difficult grazing conditions.

Philip emphasises the importance of having a clean reseed and shares his insights on post emergence spray as well as fertiliser application.

Finally, Philip explains when a reseed should receive its final grazing and why it’s important to consider how it fits into the closing plan for the farm.
