Monday Musings: Not All Trends Are Good Trends

from The Pasture Book, by W.R. Thompson, 1949

Land well established in kudzu is as valuable for grazing as any acre of the farm.

Set kudzu on 12 foot rows 3 1/2 feet apart, using 1000 crowns per acre.  This should cover the land in about 3 years

Since cultivation is so important at time of establishing and is not needed at all after a good cover is on the ground, it will pay to give kudzu all the help it needs to get a good start quickly.

Overgrazing will kill kudzu (therefore) it should never be grazed close enough to get all the leaves off and new growth all grazed back.
