Mixture 2

GRAZING MIXTURE

Mixture 3

CUTTING MIXTURE

Intensive silage regimes tend to put high pressure on the longevity and performance of a mixture and thus the fertiliser requirement is particulary high. Our organic cutting mixture contains a high proportion of a clover blend to ensure optimum fixation of atmospheric nitrogen so the ley does not prematurely ‘run out of steam’. The optimum blend of several mid and late season Perennials includes a number of high performance Tetraploids.

Mixture 5

LONG TERM, LOW INPUT MIXTURE

A traditional mixture that harks back to the days when all livestock farms were organic. It includes Meadow Fescue and Timothy, both of which have the potential to outyield Perennial Ryegrass in lower fertility conditions. The inclusion of a high proportion of White Clover seed enables the ley to rapidly achieve maximum clover levels for optimum fixation of atmospheric nitrogen.
