Leura displays a very prostrate growth habit and produces a low, dense sward. Although relatively soft seeded, it sets sufficient seed to ensure the reliable regeneration of plant populations.
- Most suited to areas with dry summer conditions
- Excellent overall production – improved cool season production and good summer performance
- Good resistance to clover scorch, leaf rust, powdery mildew and phytophthora root rot
- Contains very low levels of formononetin (oestrogen) – does not cause fertility problems in livestock
- Resistant to stem nematode
- Leura should be sown at 4-6 kg/ha in pasture mixes
- When sowing a specialist Leura stand for hay or grazing, a sowing rate of 8-12 kg/ha should be used
- Leura is compatible with most perennial pasture grasses and performs well in a mixture with cocksfoot or tall fescue.
