Hard Horse Hay - Two Year Ley 70% ORGANIC

Ref: mix9org

This mix is devised specifically for the production of hay or haylage. Lasting two years, and with good disease resistance it produces a consistent sample of hard hay. Although it can be grazed, this is principally a cutting ley. Sow in autumn to provide stemmy hay the following spring. Spring sowings result in soft, leafy grass unsuitable for hay production until the following year.

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.
