Hi Everyone, first post here.
I'm interested in trying to grow oats, just a small scale trial of some different techniques. I heard about pasture cropping on the agroinnovations podcast, this seems to be a proven system and very sustainable. As I understand it you have a pasture of perennial native grasses which is grazed for part of the year before having the cereal crop sown directly into it with minimal disturbance of the soil, due to a specially designed seed drill I think.

I wonder if anyone has tried anything similar and in particular, how you might go about sowing this way on a human powered scale without special machinery.

Here's some more info, interesting stuff.

Thanks
