OK, some good points to consider, but it’s not just about yield and protein. Adding diversity in your plant species increases diversity in soil microbes as well, dramatically. That increases the amounts of available nutrients in the soil, which overall improves soil health, and plant health.
We have cowpeas and sorghum out for first time; will turn the cattle in later this week. I read to graze AS9302 to 6″. But I also want the cowpeas to regrow as well.
Advice on rotationally grazing cowpeas/sorghum appreciated…Thanks!
