Planting Recommendations for Buck Busters® Fall Seed Mixes

  1. Optimum planting time in most locations in the southeast is Sept. 1 - Nov. 1 but can be planted earlier or later in more northern and southern locations. Plant 60 days before first average frost date in fall.
  2. Planting rate is 50 lbs. per acre.

  3. Soil tests are recommended. A pH of 6.0 - 7.0 is desirable.

  4. Soil should be well tilled and seeds should be lightly covered 1/4 - 1/2 inch deep.

  5. No till instructions: fair to good results can be obtained with no till. Burn down with Glyphosate or any other burn-down herbicide (desirable but not critical), bush hog as low to the ground as possible, seed through the sod or use grain drill, fertilize as recommended.

  6. Fertilizer recommendations per acre
    At planting

       and 30-60 days later
    Ammonium Nitrate or
    Urea (critical) .........100-200 lbs.

    NOTE: Do not mix seed and fertilizer in the hopper together. Broadcast seed, fertilize, and then cover.

  7. Fertilizer recommendations Spring:
