Grass seed mixtures for agriculture

Our Grass Mixture Selector Tool 

To help ensure you get the best mixture for your enterprise decide how long the ley will last, as a general rule, short term leys are used for stewardship, environmental, biodiversity, cover, catch crops and conserved forage such as silage or haylage, with higher yields. A medium term ley is typically 3-4 years. While longer term leys, 5+years. Mixtures can be identified by the characteristics of what they are suited to, graze and silage, for all livestock class, cover crop, AD or listed for the specific livestock class they are designed for. 

AFTER MAIZE

Fast grass

  • 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

  • Short Term
  • Medium Term
  • Long Term

 

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.
