I have 12 acres of pasture that is doing really well except for a lower area that gets soggy in the rain. That area, about 3 acres, has been a boon for curly dock. My plan has been to cut it down to help other things out compete it and seed it with Japanese millet and buckwheat now and some cereal rye in the fall. So, I brush hogged it all down last weekend and it created a pretty good mat of mulch. However, I currently only have a 3-point broadcast seeder available to me. Any creative ways to get the seed down in the mulch to make reasonable seed-to-soil contact? I don't have a drill or I'd simply use that. I'm open to getting creative. I don't have any grazing livestock to put in there as I don't have any perimeter fencing in this area.
I have gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, keep me here with this tiny ad:
