Tetraploid (Standard Endophyte)

Cantina performs well in different environments. A robust perennial ryegrass that produces high-yield quality pasture throughout the year. 

Cantina perennial ryegrass has late season production, taking advantage of summer rainfall for sustained forage growth.

High seasonal yields accompanied with strong persistence makes Cantina ideal in rotational grazing systems where consistent high dry matter production is required.

Suitable for all sheep, beef and dairy

Late Maturity

Maintains quality late & provides excellent animal performance later into the season.

Winter Growth

A tetraploid that gets going in winter and gives you earlier feed options.

Heavy Grazing

Once established has strong grazing recovery & persistence.

PADDOCK PREPARATIONS, SOWING & MAINTAINENCE

Best sown into a shallow (5-15mm), seedbed but can be direct drilled.

Use a roller or harrows for good seed-soil contact and improved germination rates.

The use or herbicides prior to sowing can alleviate competition from weeds.

Prepare by soil testing for fertility.

Ensure adequate P,K & S levels.

 Fertilise to  maintain legume content(30-50% )This will  improve pasture yield & quality. This will also reduce the impact of standard endophyte toxicity.

GRAZING MANAGEMENT

Cantina has excellent early plant vigour.  

Rotational grazing is recommended as it allows the plant to maximise leaf production. Grazing should be from 10-15cm -down to 2-3 cm. Avoid grazing stressed plants 

This grazing and rest approach maximises leaf production ,results in more tillers per plant , more expansive root systems and improved plant survival.
