We have a power line easement that bisects our land. It generally trends downhill to a creek and then flattens out in the valley. The hill is not terribly steep, but does have many rocks. The valley is bottom land black dirt (a rarity in the Ozarks). Like many fields in this part of the country, fescue has been planted. This stuff is worthless. It does stop erosion, but it chokes out other, native plants and is useless to wildlife. I am planning to overseed with several varieties of clover this fall. The bees and the deer should love it. My question is whether to due a burn down kill of all of the existing vegetation. That is, spray it with round up and others followed by a burn and disking prior to planting. In the bottom, no issues, but the hillside may create erosion and most definitely will produce rocks from disking. Anyone have any experience with this?
