Key benefits

  • Increases the proportion of productive ryegrass in the sward
  • Improves the quality of the grass for better animal performance
  • Improves the Nitrogen efficiency of the sward and can boost or reintroduce white clover
  • Repairs the damage caused by poaching of grazing swards
  • Specifically designed to work best with specialist overseeding techniques
  • FINTONA is a high yielding perennial ryegrass with excellent spring growth and total yield under both cutting and grazing
  • BANNFOOT (England, Wales, Scotland only) produces improved yields with high D value along with excellent persistency. It also has a good all-round disease profile
  • GOSFORD (Northern Ireland only) is used for its late summer growth (119%)
  • Includes varieties which are aggressive enough to establish in an existing sward,
    yet easy to manage

 

When to sow

Sow when soil temperature is above 6°C but preferably over 8°C, especially in Northern Ireland and when using clover.
