FEATURES

  • A high production quality mixture which can be cut up to three times in a season using varieties that combine high yield and good D-value.
  • Can also be used as a mixture for early and late grazing with silage cut.

BENEFITS

  • Italian and hybrid ryegrasses ensure early spring growth combined with a high yield.
  • Good spread of tetraploids and diploids give winter hardiness and a tighter sward.
  • Highly palatable grass is ensured with good ground cover.
  • Will be persistent for three to four years.

MANAGEMENT

  • Cut at or around first ear emergence followed by second and perhaps a third.
  • Can be grazed intensively all season.
  • Intensive management is essential to avoid the sward going stemmy; high input = high output.

ADDITIONAL POINTS

  • Red clover can be included.
