Westerwold & Vetch Six Month Ley 70% ORGANIC

Ref: mixwwvorg

A good balance between a vigorous grass and a fast growing short term legume, this mixture can be used to provide a very large cut or early spring grazing and is an economical, effective option for over-winter soil management too. For over-wintering sowing should take place by late September. The mixture can be incorporated in April or May. (For livestock farms it may be left and made into silage in late May.) Westerwolds ryegrass will regrow after cutting so can be left through the summer for further cutting or mulching. To minimise the risk of ryegrass seed being shed, it is advisable to cut before the seed heads are visible.

Grass

Westerwold Ryegrass

Westerwolds is the highest yielding ryegrass with similar forage quality to the well known Italian ryegrass. This is an annual form of ryegrass which is very fast to establish, producing a silage crop just 12 weeks from sowing. It is the only grass to produce a stem and seed head from a spring sowing, making it suitable for the production of hay for horses, from a spring planting.
