When choosing a grass seed mixture suitable for Grazing in 2021, varieties with strong PPI values and high intake characteristics are essential to maximise the return on your investment. Choosing varieties with positive values for quality will help ensure a palatable mixture when used in grazing swards, which will support higher animal intakes and animal performance. 

When choosing a grass seed mixture suitable for silage it is important to differentiate between a mixture designed for Intensive silage (3 Cuts +) versus a mixture that is designed for Cutting and Grazing i.e. dual purpose.  

For more information, please contact your Lakeland Agri Technical Sales Representative or our Customer Services Centre on 1890 4747 20 (ROI) or 028 30262311(NI). 

From 1st January 2020, farms in derogation in ROI must include 0.6 kg clover per acre or 1.0 kg coated clover per acre when reseeding. White, red or a mixture of both white and red clover is acceptable. Remember to use a clover-safe post emergence spray after sowing clover.
