How to apply:
Due to the very low seeding rate of one 50-pound bag per acre. (overseeding rate), it is best to mix the pasture seed with a starter fertilizer such as our Green-up for Seeding and Sodding and spread the pasture seed and fertilizer together in the same spreader. If a bag of fertilizer that covers 15,000 sq ft is used, for one acre, three bags would be mixed with one 50-pound bag of pasture mixture –185 pounds of the combined products would be spread over one acre of pasture. This is the over seeding rate, double the rate of pasture mixture to establish a new pasture on a bare dirt seeding.
