Preferred soils:  Do not plant in soils with pH greater than 7.5 as iron chlorosis can be a problem.  Plant in soil temperature of 60° F and climbing.

Establishment:  Apply 1 to 1¼ lbs. of nitrogen (N) per day of planned growth.  Potassium levels should be similar to that of corn.

Management suggestions:  For grazing, recommended begin height is 20 to 24″ with a stop height of 6 to 7″.  Best to machine harvest before plants reach 36-40″ in height and leave a stubble height of 6 to 8″.  Use sharp blades, a clean cut will enhance regrowth.  See tech sheet for more information.
