Clover, the powerhouse addition to VATBUSTER pastures

When considering pasture options, don't forget about clover! ?

We're continuning to see more and more clover added to mixes in the past 3-4 years due the introduction of higher quality and more sustainable clovers.

As many of you would already know for every tonne of clover dry matter grown per hectare, 25kg of nitrogen is fixed ?  We've choosen white (and red) clover with high dry matter production potential that has the ability to perform as part of a mixed sward. Each of our premium clovers Legacy, Mantra, Quartz, Hilltop & Demand have ALL been bred to perform within high performance ryegrass swards such as VATBUSTER.

The small amount of red clover we add to VATBUSTER has a deeper taproot compared to white giving it greater tolerance of summer dry conditions and provides significantly higher dry matter production during these periods than white clover.

Quality, late maturing ryegrasses in VATBUSTER

Our main aim is to grow feed every day moisture is available, and late maturing ryegrasses enable farmers to maximise a grasses production by keeping leafy late into the season.

With this in mind, late flowering cultivars of Matrix (+23), Base AR37 (+22) and Reward Endo5 (+24), 4Front (+18) have been chosen to fit the brief of VATBUSTER.

When compared to older types such as Nui and Vic, VATBUSTER on average goes to seed head 23 days later, providing a significant advantage in late Spring as they maintain leafiness for longer.

Robust endophytes to combat insects and harsher conditions

VATBUSTER contains three robust endophyte strains - AR37, NEA2, Endo5 and Standard Endophyte - giving protection to these already high performing grasses.

Endophyte enhances the yield and persistence of the grass, because the endophyte produces a number of compounds that are toxic to various insects, and other grass pests.

  • Improved pasture persistence
  • Increased pasture yield
  • Protect grasses from insect attack
