Description

A HIGH YIELDING, DISEASE RESISTANT FORAGE TRITICALE

Provides early grazing opportunities until early stages of development and before the growing point moves up the plant. Grazing should be minimal to maximise silage yield.

  • Ready to graze in 50-160 days
  • Best quality is achieved when grain is at “milky dough “ stage
  • Provides high quality early grazing and then whole crop cereal silage production
  • Sowing rate should be 120-150kg/ha
  • Best sown between autumn and winter
  • Earlier sowing in irrigated light soils or dryland situations is recommended as soil moisture content is a major limiting factor on final yields
  • Minimum 500mm rainfall per annum unless irrigated
