Boxmore

Boxmore

Boxmore – tetraploid hybrid ryegrass. Highly palatable long rotation hybrid. Nil Endophyte. High production all year. Superior cool season growth. Variety Overview Boxmore is a Tetraploid long rotation hybrid Ryegrass, nil Endophyte that produces a quality, highly palatable feed all year round and especially during the cooler seasons  due to its European Breeding. These characteristics will improve animal performances. Tetraploids have increased palatability and it has undergone extensive trialing in New Zealand and Australia. Boxmore is suitable for a wide range of stock types, and for silage and quality finishing of stock. High Perennial Parentage to give extra persistence. Sowing and Establishment Boxmore Tetraploid can be sown alone at 25 – 30Kg/ Ha. Clover should be included, and other species can also be considered for mixes at sowing rates between 10 / 20Kg/Ha. It combines well with other components of a pasture mix. Requires fertile soils, summer moist or irrigated conditions and fertilizer for maximum production. Grazing Management Tetraploids give high animal intake, and higher clover content, which will give superior animal performances. Do not overgraze under prolonged dry periods, avoid pugging under very wet conditions. Well suited to a wide range of grazing systems. Performs well under rotational grazing of all stock types.

Fescmore

Fescmore

Fescmore – Meadow Fescue     Superior stock performance Highly palatable Excellent spring-summer production Nil endophyte Ideal alone or part of a mix   Variety Overview Fescmore is a German bred fescue and was bred for dry arid prairies and snow covered plains. When established is grass grub resistant producing a sweet and highly palatable grass. Fescmore takes a little longer to develop than other fescues, but holds on a lot longer producing more long term feed. Sowing and Establishment Sown alone at 25 kg/ha or 15-20 kg/ha in a pasture mix, sow in spring or autumn. Fescues have relatively slow seedling growth compared with ryegrass so must not be sown in ryegrass mixtures, full production is expected after the first year. Do not sow too deep, within the range of 0.5-1.2 cm, certainly not deeper. Grazing Management Fescues have excellent production through late spring and summer, perennial ryegrasses stop growing at a soil temperature of 19 degrees centigrade, where fescmore does not. It remains vegetative as the seed head is grazed off and is tolerant to dry conditions. Online Order Form...

Grazmore

Grazmore

Grazmore – tetraploid perennial ryegrass      Highly palatable Nil endophyte Superior stock preference 42 days later bolting than Nui Ideal in permanent pasture mixes Variety Overview  Grazmore is a tetraploid perennial ryegrass with nil endophyte. It has ability to establish quickly into a quality highly palatable pasture, increasing intake and improved animal performance. Grazmore goes to seed 42 days later than Nui, which provides dramatically improved feed quality in late spring and summer and also makes control of seed head development easier. Grazmore was selected and bred from European material, has undergone extensive trailling in New Zealand and Australia. It is suitable for a wide range of soil types and conditions from poorly drained to well drained, light sandy soils to heavy clay loams. Heat and Drought tolerant. Sowing and establishment Grazmore can be sown alone at 25-30 kg/ha. Clovers should always be included and other species can also be considered for mixes, at sowing rates between 10-20 kg/ha. It combines well with other components of a pasture mix and can tolerate hard grazing. Grazing Management Grazmore is 42 days later bolting than Nui, providing a longer grazing regime with extra productivity over late spring and summer. Grazmore is well suited to a range of grazing systems. It performs well under rotational grazing by both cattle and sheep and also persists well if hard grazed or set stocking by sheep.
