PRODUCTIVE PASTURES REQUIRE GRASSMANSHIP™
Nufarm recognizes your commitment to producing high quality beef. One key step is assuring high-quality range and pasture productivity. Now more than ever, better grass can equate to lower production cost per head and higher profits. When you take the steps to make your grass the best it can be – that’s Grassmanship. The Grassmanship program provides best practices and product solutions to help you manage range, pasture, and premises with sustainable precision. Nufarm applauds your dedication to quality Grassmanship that makes a true difference to the land and your cattle.
Good Grass Matters
Weeds and pests in pasture compete for space, light, soil moisture, soil nutrients and reduce pasture productivity resulting in poor quality pasture. The purer the stand of high quality grassland, the better your productivity. This is why it is important to have a well-planned grassland management program which is reviewed continuously.
CONSIDER THESE PRACTICES IN YOUR APPROACH TO GRASS MANAGEMENT
The Nufarm Grassmanship program has been designed to provide you with information on management practices that will help your farm’s long-term productivity and profitability. It outlines grassland renewal programs and provides advice on “best choice” products for the most commonly occurring weed and pest problems and how to maximize the productivity of your grass.
