Forage Herb Selections
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.
Exceptional animal production
Plantain is a palatable, mineral rich perennial herb with a deep fibrous root system enabling good heat and drought tolerance and which is generally recommended for use in lower fertility dryland pasture mixes.
Rocket fuel for livestock performance
A high yielding, very high quality and leafy chicory showing fast establishment, rapid re-growth, strong insect resistance and good drought tolerance.
