Description

Legume content in Kentucky pastures has been reduced dramatically as a result of the drought and high temperatures of 2005 and very muddy conditions this past winter. In addition, late-winter early-spring seedings during 2004 were not as successful as normal due to excessive moisture during the establishment periods. As a result of our reduced amount of legumes in pasture and the many advantages legumes have for improving Kentucky pastures, serious considerations should be given to renovating pastures in 2006.
