Caretaker II

Ryegrass, Perennial Ryegrass

    Caretaker II diploid perennial ryegrass produces high quality feed across the entire growing season. Its mid-late maturity enables it to remain vegetative in late spring and early summer. This allows for easier grazing management as there are fewer seed heads compared with early to mid-heading types during spring.

    This product is best suited to areas with a longer growing season with higher rainfall, which also makes
    Caretaker II a great option for late hay or silage production.

    Suitable for sheep, beef and dairy.

    AGRONOMY GUIDELINES
    Paddock preparationsCan be direct drilled or sown into a cultivated seedbed. Can be over sown into existing pasture sward. Cultivate seed bed if ground is uneven.
    Sowing depthShallow (10-15mm). Using a roller will ensure good seed-soil contact and improve germination rates
    Weed controlA 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.
    FertiliserThe use of fertiliser at sowing may improve the establishment. The use of phosphorus fertiliser annually may improve the longevity of the stand.
    Grazing managementPasture should not be grazed until adequately anchored (cannot not be pulled out easily). Ryegrass is better suited to rotational grazing. Allow plants to re-grow to 2.5-3 leaf stage before grazing again.
