Pasture Frost Seed Mix

    Description

    The Pasture Frost Seed mix is designed to add diversity to an existing pasture. Three types of clover provide the bulk of the mix helping your pasture fix nitrogen and providing livestock with protein. The collards and turnips help aerate the soil with their taproots as well as providing additional nutrition to livestock. Chicory and plantain are known for their antimicrobial and antiparasitic properties in livestock, helping keep your herd healthy.

    This product is pre-inoculated with GreenMerge and Rhizo-Fixer Plus, to increase the biological activity in your soil. 
    • GreenMerge is a seed applied inoculant derived from natural products designed to stimulate seed germination, increase root and biological biomass in the soil, and improve soil structure. OMRI status has been applied for and is pending.
