Forage Recovery Plan 2019

A wet fall 2018 not only delayed, and in some cases completely prevented, timely fall-plantings of cool-season annual and perennial forages in North Carolina. In addition, areas that remained flooded for several days in 2018 resulted in permanently damaged pastures that will require to be re-stablished or temporarily damaged pastures that may need extra care to recover to its full potential.
