Overseeding Bermudagrass Pastures with Ryegrass and Clovers: Estimating Partial Returns

Results from a three-year study at University of Arkansas’ Southeast Research and Extension Center in Monticello, Arkansas were used to examine partial returns (PR) from stocker cattle grazing bermudagrass pastures overseeded with ryegrass and crimson clover, white clover, or crimson and white clover in two grazing seasons. The study revealed that at current fertilizer and seed prices, the control pasture, overseeded with ryegrass and fertilized with commercial nitrogen, provided higher PR than pastures overseeded with clovers and ryegrass. Furthermore, the study revealed current nitrogen fertilizer prices would have to more than double for producers to achieve greater PR with clovers.
