When to sow

Sow when soil temperature is above 8°C; clover will germinate at 10°C.

 

The mixture has been designed to provide season-long production, with exceptional early spring and late summer growth.

 

When to graze & cut

Provides excellent early spring growth, making it ideal for outdoor lambing or cattle turnout. Excellent early season grazing can be followed by a baled silage or hay crop then autumn grazing or a full season of grazing. Up to two cuts can be achieved after early grazing. When cut, this mixture will produce good, conserved fodder for winter feed.
