BARIKI PASTURESoil and Pasture Enhancer
BARIKI® PASTURE is essential to maintain a healthy pasture!
The horse evolved primarily as a grazing herbivore, eating a diet based on fiber, mainly grass. Primarily grass diets are usually not sufficient to maintain the working horse and as a result, cereals, supplements and oils have been introduced to many equine diets. These have many benefits but can also potentially cause a lot of health problems.
Quality grass and conserved forages are the most important ingredients in diet of your horse to maintain health and improve performance of your horse.
There are many microorganisms that exist on the surface of leaves. Some produce hormones that activate the plants, creating nitrogen and a natural antibiotic. When taken in by plants from the surface of leaves, these will promote enzyme activity and plant growth.
There are many microorganisms in the soil, especially within 5mm of the roots because they eat carbohydrates, amino acids and organic acids produced by the roots.
Among the substances produced by the roots, there are beneficial materials that promote growth and others that constrain growth (pathogenic bacteria). This is basic microbiology. When materials that constrain growth accumulate in the soil, growing some vegetables without crop rotation becomes impossible. Each plant secretes particular substances. Then certain microorganisms gather to feed and breed around the root of the plants according to what is secreted. It is the battle of the good against the bad and which gather around the root of the plant that will determine plant health.
When BARIKI® PASTURE is given constantly to the plants, an environment of good microorganisms will create a perfect ecosystem of microorganisms. This is why it is possible to grow the same plants or crops consecutively in the same place. The increases of microbial activity help plants grow.
Adding BARIKI® PASTURE to your pasture will significantly change the quality of your plants, improving its taste, and promote plant growth and production.

Pasture Management Tips:
Do not let your horse have too much grass too soon - Too much grass too quickly can cause serious horse health problems, especially when the grass is lush, rich, and high in sugar. Start with one hour, then several hours over several weeks. If you have any concerns, consult your local veterinarian for their recommendation on how much to allow your horse to graze.
Keep horses off soggy soil - If you walk around the paddock and you notice your foot prints are left behind, that means that your horse will end up compacting and suffocating the roots of grass. Dormant seeds or plants can not survive the continuous trampling or grazing.
Cover bare spots - To keep the weeds from taking over in the summer and mud in winter, continue to fill those bare spots with pasture seeds.
Rotate grazing area and allow grass to grow - During the growing season, make sure to section off the paddocks to allow the grass to grow and ensure rapid re-growth. When the horse graze the grass down to 3-4 inches (7.5-10cm), make sure to rotate them to another paddock and allow the grass to re-grow back to 6 inches (15.25cm).
Section off soggy parts of the pasture until mid summer - Section off the lower wet area and allow your horses to graze in higher grounds. Once the ground is dry during summer, allow your horses in the lower elevated area.
