Finefeed diploid annual ryegrass is a fine-leaved ryegrass with high tiller density allowing quick recovery from heavy grazing. A robust all-rounder suited to a range of environments, especially tough environments that are not suited to tetraploids.
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 the 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.|
