Hay & Graze Medium Term 4 year Hay Ley - 70% ORGANIC

Ref: MIXHGORG

A longer term option for the hay and haylage producer with upright hybrid ryegrass and longer lasting perennial ryegrass. Diploid varieties have been included for faster drying. Although slower to establish in the first year, timothy will provide good bulk from year two onwards. Sow in the autumn to provide a crop in the following spring, it can also be cut earlier in the year to provide haylage. Once cut it will provide high quality late summer and autumn grazing.

Grass

Hybrid Ryegrass

This form of ryegrass is perhaps one of the best grasses available to the intensive farmer. The hybrid ryegrass is a cross between the Italian and perennial forms of ryegrass and shares characteristics of both. The dominant parent determines how the variety performs in the field. Most hybrid varieties are dominant with Italian genes and the best cultivars provide the same or similar high yields as Italian ryegrass. But as they also contain some of the persistent genes of the perennial ryegrass parent they last longer. This longer lasting and high yielding silage grass has one further advantage: the genes of the perennial ryegrass parent produces a plant with more tillers and more leaf which gives increased ground cover, making them better for aftermath grazing.

Timothy

Possibly the most important and flexible grass species which is used both environmentally and agriculturally. It is a very common species found in pasture throughout the UK. It retains its verdure longer than most grasses and although similar to smaller cats tail, it is larger in size with wider leaves and a longer spike like panicle.
