How much water do grass seed crops need? When are the critical application times? Can you over-water? What happens if they don’t get enough? FAR’s Herbage Research Manager, Richard Chynoweth, explains that grass seed crops need water at both ends of the growing season, first to form and then to fill seed heads. He also outlines the benefits of soil moisture monitoring.
