Quick Bulk Intensive One Year Ley

 
Annual Species
Contains annual plants which usually die once they have flowered. Most annuals establish and set seed in the same year.
 
Fast Establishment
Quick to establish with rapid growth. Very competitive against weeds and fast to recover after cutting/grazing.
 
Grass Only
Intensive production for maximum yield of forage with high nitrogen applications.
Ref: MIXQB. A very fast growing ley which can be sown in the spring or autumn and is primarily grown to produce silage. However, it can be grazed and the crop can provide 'early bite' when sown in the autumn. Spring sowings on fertile soils with adequate moisture perform well but expectations should be lowered on drought-prone land. Mixture Contents...
