    What fertilizer and how much should i put out on ground that was cut for silage , its just for grazing ? it got 2000 gallons of slurry last week .


  • Nothing I’d say, considering the cost of fertiliser

    I guess it would depend on Ur demand for grass, after the slurry , can would drive it on

    The with current prices of fertilizers the days of fertilizing blind are gone. Best option in the current climate is to do a soil test first, it'll cost less than a single bag of fertilizer

    If it is just for grazing, 2000 gallons is plenty.

    Fertilizer is not your friend.

    It wil depend on demand and how slurry was put out. If it was very watery, spread with splash plate or using LESS equipment.

    If you can wait for 8 ish weeks for grass slurry with a splash plate. If you want grass in 4ish weeks you will need N. LESS spreading equipment will give you 8 units per thousand gallons. Splash plate only 4 units

    If you w as not grass in a month you need 30-40 units of N We had great weather for spreading urea over the last week and to be fair grass is recovering fast.

    If you need grass fairly fast I would put a third to a half bag of protected urea on it
