Growing approximately 3 weeks earlier than Italian ryegrass, Forage Grazing Rye is ideal for increasing early spring forage on the farm.
Use it to provide an early-bite for dairy cows or as fresh forage for lactating sheep.
It can be sown after combine harvesting a Combicrop® in late summer, where it will absorb the nitrogen produced by the peas and reduce winter leaching of all soil nutrients.
Forage Grazing Rye also has a large fibrous rooting system which improves the soil structure.
Sow at 75 kilos per acre in September – October, preferably in a free-draining, dry, sheltered field.
Available as Organic seed, and as Conventional seed.
