Many farms are having pipelines installed as construction continues through a number of counties across the state. Following construction of a pipeline comes the need to seed the area above and adjacent to the pipeline, and there are a number of seeding mixtures available to re-establish vegetative growth. There also are a number of questions that should be answered prior to making a seeding. These questions include:
- What grasses and forages were present prior to seeding?
- What will you do with the land following construction?
- Will you graze livestock on the land?
- Do you prefer a pure seeding mixture?
Below is a link to an Ohio State University Extension Fact Sheet that will assist in answering these questions. This publication also addresses seeding options and rates.
