A new product in 2024, ideal for biodiversity, productivity, and use in SFI systems (Sustainable Farming Incentives).
A mixture of 6 grasses, 3 legumes, and 5 herbs, this mixture is suitable for cutting and grazing, but will do best if given sufficient rest times in between defoliations.
Ryegrass content makes this mixture productive, while the addition of other grasses makes it suitable across a wide range of environmental conditions and soil types.
Legumes provide nitrogen fixation, and protein content for feed, while herbs provide minerals. Together they both offer a range of rooting structures to improve sward resilience and soil condition, and promote beneficial insect populations with a variety of flowers.
An approachable way to incorporate biodiversity onto your farm
Designed as a medium term ley
Management very similar to straight ryegrass swards – no extra work on farm
