Maximum production & Quality in a single cut
BIODIVERSE MIXTURE FOR A SINGLE CUT, COMPOSED OF ANNUAL RYEGRASS, VETCH AND OTHER ANNUAL CLOVERS
. Made up of late varieties (long cycle).
. Production potential is realized in the spring.
. Production concentrated at the end of the cycle.
Reasons for sowing
. Excellent digestibility - increases animal feed intake.
. Ideal solution for plots where animals cannot enter to graze.
. High protein value - ideal for more intensive production.
. The first cut*, when ryegrass has 8-9 leaves, improves the crop’s homogeneity and controls weeds, improving its floristic composition
. For a better quality/quantity ratio, the cut for hay or silage should be done when 30-40% of the leguminous are flowering
. To obtain a high quality silage, pre-wilting should be done in order to obtain a dry matter content between 30% and 45%
* Only possible with early sowing and with favorable climatic conditions
