Quick Bulk Westerwolds - Intensive One Year Ley

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. Unlike other ryegrasses, westerwolds will produce a stem and seed head from a spring sowing. This is useful, especially for the production of high quality horse hay in the same year as sowing.

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.
