DAIRY - BEEF - SHEEP - SILAGE

Intensive, long-term grazing mixture with cutting option without clover.

The concept

PERMANENT (NO CLOVER) is a blend of perennial ryegrass and Timothy designed to give season-long production from a dense, prolific ley.

The omission of clover in the mixture allows for cost effective weed control.

This long-term mixture gives the option of taking later cuts of top quality silage

THE REASONS

  • The tetraploid varieties in PERMANENT (NO CLOVER) have been carefully selected to ensure higher water soluble carbohydrate content while not sacrificing sward density
  • Includes CLANRYE, one of the highest yielding late heading perennial ryegrasses (100% of control varieties)
  • Includes DUNLUCE, a firm favourite in mixtures for marginal land, a dense growing variety that brings all the benefits of a tetraploid but maintains its quality should grazing or cutting be delayed
  • Contains GLENARIFF, a high performing variety with excellent silage and grazing yields combined with excellent sward density
  • Contains all Northern Ireland bred perennial ryegrass varieties which are all recommended by DARD

Supplied as 14kg per acre packs. Sowing: 2,112 seeds/m2

Permanent No Clover (NI)

The product

When to sow

Perennial ryegrass germinates at 8C; ensure this is sown when soil temperature is above 8C.

When to cut

This long-term mixture allows the option of taking later cuts, from late May, of top quality silage.

When to graze

Designed for intensive grazing between early summer and autumn, with the aim of providing balanced production from turnout to late autumn.

PERMANENT (NO CLOVER) produces a dense, leafy, persistent and easily managed ley that produces highly palatable and digestible grass.
