ORGANIC PERMANENT

From our range of organic mixtures

  • A blend of perennial ryegrass and optional 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, with clover, will produce more milk
  • Approved by the Soil Association

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 graze & cut

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