- 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.
