Amplify phalaris is a deep-rooted perennial capable of tolerating waterlogged and acidic soils. A great all-rounder with high winter forage yields and some summer production under favourable conditions. Amplify has the ability to go summer dormant under adverse conditions for increased persistence. A long-term perennial pasture that gives you increased seedling vigour and lower toxicity. Amplify is a smart choice for growers who want a reliable and high yielding long-term pasture.
Suitable for sheep, beef, and dairy.
|Paddock preparations||Best sown into a cultivated seedbed but can be direct drilled. Cultivate seed bed if ground is uneven.|
|Sowing depth||Shallow (5-15mm), using a roller will ensure good seed-soil contact and improve germination rates.|
|Weed control||A weed free seedbed allows for better establishment results. The use of herbicides prior to sowing can alleviate competition from weeds. Phalaris is a slow to establish species and should be monitored throughout early establishment phase for both weeds and insect pests|
|Fertilizer||The use of fertiliser at sowing will improve the establishment and longevity of the stand.|
|Grazing management||Phalaris is a slow to establish species and therefore should be allowed plenty of time to establish. Only very light grazing in the first year is acceptable to encourage tillering but otherwise grazing should be avoided in the first year especially when phalaris is flowering as this is when dormant buds are forming for long term persistence.|
