PERMANENT

Intensive long-term grazing mixture with cutting option

  • PERMANENT is a blend of perennial ryegrass, Timothy and white clover designed to give season-long production from a dense, prolific ley
  • This long-term mixture gives the option of taking later cuts of top quality silage
  • Trials at Moorepark in Eire have shown that cows grazed on this type of ley will produce more milk

  • Sheep
  • Beef
  • Grazing
  • Silage

 

  • The tetraploid varieties in PERMANENT have been carefully selected to ensure higher water soluble carbohydrate content while not sacrificing sward density
  • Contains all Northern Ireland bred perennial ryegrass varieties which are all recommended by DARD
  • Includes Clanrye, one of the highest yielding late heading perennial ryegrasses (100% of control varieties)
  • Contains Glenariff, an Intermediate heading diploid perennial, which is already proving its worth with high silage and grazing yields combined with excellent sward density

 

WHEN TO SOW

Perennial ryegrass germinates at 8°C; ensure this is sown when soil temperature is above 8°C, clover will germinate at 10°C.

 

WHEN TO CUT

Although a grazing mixture, there is the option of taking later cuts of top quality silage if required.

 

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 produces a dense, leafy, persistent and easily managed ley that produces highly palatable and digestible grass.
