WinterCrop Oats, Ryegrass & Ryecorn has been developed to improve winter feed balance with a exceptionally quick establishing forage ryecorn, rapid establishing forage oat and late season Bullet Annual Ryegrass.
A key advantage of this three-way forage blend is its fast establishment, an ability to produce high quality feed at a time when feed is in short supply and enable higher stocking rates. It is important that this blend is lightly grazed as soon as it is able to withstand pulling. This will encourage the plants to grow more tillers, therefore adding extra growth, extending the growing period.
- Exceptional speed of establishment – fill early winter feed gap
- Good nutritional balance
- Fast growing oat, winter active annual ryegrass
- Increase in winter yield without impacting spring yield.
Plant into a weed free seed bed as there are limited herbicide controls once the crop has emerged.

WinterCrop forage blends are ideal for farmers looking for winter grazing and producing larger volumes of fodder in spring. WinterCrop offers choices of vigorous, leafy, high quality forage crops that can produce feed in late winter and spring often in a relatively short period.
Our agronomy team can help you decide which forage to grow from the WinterCrop range available, planning the great time duration for feed, harvest/grazing intention, and rotational requirements.
WinterCrop forage blends can accompany summer forage crops such as Top Crop forage blends, or standalone crops such as millet and sorghum.
