Maximum-Yield Two Year Silage Ley

Optimum balance between the highest quality and yield for silage. Maximum-Yield produces the all important first cut, usually between the second and third week of May. At this time the grasses will have high D-values and a high soluble carbohydrate content which ensures good silage fermentation. As well as offering a potential major saving in silage additive, this improves palatability and therefore the profitability of winter milk production.

Grass

Italian Ryegrass

This is a short lived grass lasting for two years. It is very high yielding and reliably provides up to 18t DM per hectare on soils that suit it. (All ryegrasses yield less on light soils, especially in low rainfall areas.) It has a very open growth habit with fewer tillers than other grasses. It is therefore better suited to cutting than grazing. Italian ryegrass has been the subject of plant breeding for many years, which means there are a wide range of varieties available commercially.
