  • Ideal for delivering a high quality grass crop after Maize harvest, AFTER MAIZE provides a very quick establishment and rapid growth even at cool temperatures.
  • AFTER MAIZE grass seed mixture gives full flexibility in the duration of the ley, with 12, 18 or 24 month production potential
  • AFTER MAIZE could also be established after a spring cereal harvest

Later production = winter grazing option

Thanks to its ability to germinate at lower temperatures than conventional leys meaning it can be sown safely throughout October, After Maize has been developed using the concept of ‘germination energy’.

This concept means it will establish faster and better than other leys, even in the adverse conditions, of cold, wet seed beds which appear later in the year.

 

20% faster establishing than the average ryegrass

By measuring the germination rate under low temperatures of 7-10°C, similar to those found in the field throughout October and selecting those which give the best germination in the shortest time, the result is an establishment rate of over 20 percent above the average ryegrass. After Maize is a very flexible product that can fit into different regimes as required.

It is equally at home being used as an early spring cut before being ploughed out for a spring-sown crop or used as a sacrifice field for early spring grazing as a more cost effective alternative to rye.
