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

 

When to graze & cut

Produces highly digestible forage from a mid-to-late May first cut with the mixture averaging over 70% D value throughout the season. Can produce three-four cuts a season for up to five years.

 

This top-quality dual purpose mixture has the ability to be grazed from early spring through to late autumn.

 

Hybrid ryegrasses grow at 6°C, therefore extend the growing season. This makes HYBRID CUT & GRAZE a very flexible mixture for mixed enterprises who need cutting and grazing opportunities.
