Late Season Quality
With the latest Italian ryegrass breeding genetics Megabite Plus maintains very good feed quality into late spring due to high overall feed quality and very low aftermath heading. Megabite Plus will produce plentiful feed for multiple grazings through late autumn, winter and spring. The addition of legumes provides even high valuer silage and hay.
Megabite Plus should be sown as soon as there is adequate moisture in the autumn which will maximise winter production.
Megabite Plus should have a light grazing as soon as the plants won’t pull out. This will encourage tillering as well as the growth of the balansa and shaftal clovers in the blend. Megabite Plus is best suited to rotational grazing as this allows the plant to recover as quickly as possible.
