MANAGEMENT TIPS

Sowing Depth:

Sowing depth should be no greater than 10mm.

Inoculation:

All Group C.

Fertiliser:

• Soil test should be taken on the paddock prior to planting and adjustment made accordingly.
• Sow with phosphorous and potassium based fertiliser, further applications can be applied moisture allowing.

Grazing:

• Lightly graze within 6 weeks of emergence to minimize weed competition. Increase stocking rate as food on offer increases.
• De-stock at commencement of flowering in YEAR ONE to maximise seed set.
• If not harvesting, reintroduce stock anytime after seed has matured.
• If intending to harvest advice on timing and machine settings is available from our office.

  • High hard seed levels with good rate of softening
  • Good early growth
  • Excellent dry matter production
  • Very high seed yields
  • Header harvestable
  • Good insect tolerance

  • Highly productive
  • Well suited to hay and silage production
  • Low tolerance to waterlogging
  • Erect growth habit and easily header harvestable
  • Good hard seed levels for regeneration
  • Seed is so hard, germination in 2nd year can be low
