Join us for this first in a series of short, focussed webinars brought to you by the GrassCheckGB team, and held monthly up to September. GrassCheckGB and speaker Helen Mathieu from grass seed specialists Germinal will be sharing top tips for successful reseeding.
From supporting grass growth and improving feeding value to increasing silage quality, there are clear benefits to effective reseeding and it is one of the most cost-effective ways to increase pasture productivity, in turn leading to better livestock performance. Done effectively, the cost of a reseed can be easily recovered in the first year.
This webinar which will cover:
• Different reseeding methods for different situations
• Selecting grass varieties and types to produce a balanced mixture
Helen is Area Sales Manager for the North West and Midlands for Germinal. Helen offers many years’ experience working with livestock farmers and the agricultural supply chain as a forage expert.
The webinar will take place on Monday 1st June 7pm – 8pm.
