Planting Instructions:


Use general ground prep method (click here). Lambsquarters should be planted in the fall as it needs a couple of months of damp, cold weather to stratify. Drill 15 lbs per acre to a depth of less than 1” or spin spread 20 lbs. per acre. When spin spreading, lightly harrow then roll if possible. Fertilize with about 100 lbs. per acre of 16-16-16 when planting and then 100-150 lbs per acre of 46-0-0 in the spring.
