Buster is a diploid annual ryegrass with outstanding performance throughout the season. Buster makes excellent quality hay, due to the fineness of its leaves. Being densely tillered allows it to recover well from heavy grazing. A high level of rust resistance ensures quality is maintained later into the season. A robust choice in tough environments.
Suitable for all livestock types.
|Paddock preparations||Can be direct drilled or sown into a cultivated seedbed. Can be oversown into existing pasture sward. Cultivate seed bed if the ground is uneven.|
|Sowing depth||Shallow (10-15mm), 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. Speak to your local agronomist for herbicide recommendations.|
|Fertilizer||The use of fertiliser at sowing will improve the establishment and yield of pasture.|
|Grazing management||Pasture should not be grazed until adequately anchored (can not be pulled out easily). Ryegrass is better suited to rotational grazing, allowing plants to re-grow to the 2-3 leaf stage before grazing again.|
