Description

WinterCrop Super Silage (60% Field Peas, 40% Forage Oats) is an excellent late planting option for good silage production and grazability in southern areas.

This blend is commonly used with farmers in higher rainfall areas planting from June-September to produce large volumes of high energy silage in a short period of time. Can be ready to graze in 14-17 weeks

WinterCrop Super Silage combines Forage Oats to provide high yield, energy and reliable bulk, whilst the Field Peas provide protein, improved digestibility and palatability. Tall varieties of forage oats ensure good dry matter production and allow the field peas to grow upwards with them.

  • Ideal for later winter and early spring sowings
  • High yielding silage production
  • Quick feed – ready in 14-16 weeks
  • Reliable source of quality forage for all livestock classes
  • Forage oats for yield, energy and bulk
  • Field peas for protein, improve digestibility and palatability.

Companion crops
WinterCrop Super Silage is commonly followed by a second forage crop such as Top Crop Brassica & Millet, or standalone crops of forage millet and sorghum.

Harvest
Harvest the crop when the oats are at the milky-dough stage. This allow the field pea to form flat pods which increase the feed value.

Weed Control
Plant into a weed free seed bed as there are limited herbicide controls once the crop has emerged.
