When I bought my place, there was about 25 acres of long time used fescue cow pasture. But, besides the fescue - especially in the areas of severe use, there was a variety of native forbs - milkweeds, various “sunflowers”, native prairie flowers, etc. I went after the fescue - spraying it in the winter. I have got rid of a lot of it, and now have a pretty good stand of native grass - mostly little bluestem. Problem is, it has choked out almost all the forbs. I dont feel the native grass adds much benefit to my land. Deer dont use it at all - other than walking through it, and there are no quail, turkeys, and very few rabbits. I would like to reduce the density - or even kill the NWSG to allow forbs and blooming plants to come back in. I used to have a lot of milkweed and monarchs - but that is pretty much gone. I used to have a variety of songbirds, but they are gone. So, what would be the best way to reduce the NWSG density. I bush hogged and pulled the disk over it one time last year - but that made no difference. My intention is to spray cleth this year on about five acres. Should I bush hog everything low and wait for it to put on some new growth - or just spray when it is six or eight inches tall?
