  Document E-1021 Oklahoma Forage and Pasture Fertility Guide

By Brian Arnall and Daren Redfearn. This circular is designed to help producers with the complex fertilization questions they face, and it is unique in that it covers simple management practices in addition to a range of complex interactions related to forage and pasture fertility. The primary end-point is that this guide simplifies the complexity into practical situations that can be used by producers. This publication is designed to support forage and livestock producers, Extension educators, and Certified Crop Advisers in effective, profitable and environmentally-sound management decisions regarding forage and pasture fertility practices. It is not a replacement for good management; rather, it is the road map to help good managers get even better. Reviewed March 2015.

  Document PSS-2591 Bermudagrass Pasture Management

By Daren Redfearn. The three most critical aspects to managing a bermudagrass pasture program are a proper fertility program, stage of maturity at harvest, and stocking rate when grazed. These are important because these are the management options that are under complete control of the manager. Where bermudagrass is adapted and properly managed, it can be a major forage resource for many livestock operations. It tolerates a wide range of growing conditions and is more tolerant of close grazing than many other forage plants. However, bermudagrass requires a sound fertility program along with other management inputs. By meeting these management requirements, bermudagrass can provide the warm-season forage base for a profitable forage-livestock production system. Reviewed March 2015.
