We have been over seeding existing fields with a pasture mixture to get a cover crop on the bare ground between the rows of trees. We have also reseeded harvested fields with a pasture mixture to get something growing on the bare ground to protect the soil from erosion. The only catch with our plan to reduce the erosion is that sterilants have been used on many of the fields prior to our purchasing the farm. We are making an educated guess on which fields will benefit the most from over seeding. If the seed doesn't germinate we will be applying mulch in targeted areas to help reduce erosion.
