James Austen Ignoring the fact that blady grass is an exceptionally tough, nutritious C4 perennial if managed correctly, and it’s proliferation is undoubtedly due to the way they’ve managed the pasture, blady grass can be kept under control by not burning it regularly, keeping the remaining pasture dense and regularly slashing the blady grass areas to allow increased pasture competition.

Hi Kirsty,

Some responses from our social media community that may assist:

  • Caroline Bennett mate got pro in and poisoned it all with something that aided the non re growth of it, did a re seed , heavy re seed and so far some 4 yrs later are thinking we have done it............
  • Leanne Sommer Add calcium, get cattle to trample it.
  • Wendy Thorsborne whatever you do - don't burn it.

We used to spray it so it was dead and then burn it. Burning it green is a waste of time
