  • Boost can be no-tilled or broadcast over existing pastures in the fall or early spring. It is best to graze or mow pasture short, then overseed 10-20 pounds of seed per acre. Pulling a drag or harrow will help the seed filter through the existing vegetation to reach the soil. New pastures: In a prepared seedbed, drill no more than 1/2 inch deep, or broadcast and harrow, 20-30 pounds per seed acre. Roll to provide good seed/soil contact.
