Valuable summer & autumn feed
Chicory is a summer active, highly palatable perennial herb used on its own as a specialist high energy pasture or used valuable addition to most pasture seed mixes. It has broad leaves and a long thick tap-root with an exposed crown. The crown regenerates shoots which in turn develop their own roots. When used in finishing mixtures, chicory should be sown with a suitable legume such as red and white clovers.
