ADAPT

Dual purpose mixture

  • A long-term, top class, highly flexible, dual purpose mixture without clover which produces top quality forage for cutting and grazing
  • This blend of yield and palatability creates a very flexible ley meaning you will get long-term production from this highly persistent ley
  • The omission of clover allows for cost effective weed control
  • Short Term
  • Medium Term
  • Long Term

Key benefits

  • Designed to perform especially well in early summer with over 10% more yield than SRUC control varieties during the season
  • Balanced for season-long performance with intermediate and late perennial ryegrasses
  • Maximum production by using the top yielding varieties including FINTONA & GALGORM, both top of their classes for yield
  • Timothy is beneficial where increased ground cover is needed and where overwinter grazing occurs
  • Contains only first choice SRUC varieties

 

When to sow

Perennial ryegrass germinates at 8°C; ensure this is sown when soil temperature is above 8°C.

 

When to graze & cut

Produces highly digestible forage from a late May first cut with the mixture averaging over 70% D value throughout the season ensuring that this mixture is ideal for all enterprises.


This mixture can be grazed from early spring through to late summer. If it is being used for both cutting and grazing, the mixture will deliver two exceptional silage cuts and summer grazing, making it truly flexible.
