We have decided to start the reclaiming process of about 3 acres of long neglected pasture. It has grown up with goldenrod, small cedars, thistle, grass, wild cherries, some sort of ground cherry looking weed, and various other plants. We have started mowing and scything the 8 ft tall bramble bushes. My question would be, I guess, where to go from here Is there any way to supress the seeds that have been falling there for years? Should we plow and seed right away, or try to supress what is there? Anything else? We plan to use some for pasture and some for large crops like wheat, corn, fodder etc. The soil is clay, compacted(used to be buffalo pasture), and gently rolling. The water runnoff has made some grooves between weed patches, that go down to a "dip" in the land that runs off into a neighbors yard, and then to the river. Thanks in advance!
