Grass Seed Mixtures

Every year we ensure our grass mixtures consist of the highest performing varieties available, all selected from the current RGCL. Our seeds are routinely tested for germination and purity, ensuring top performance and full traceability.

Interestingly, we test silage for our customers giving us a valuable insight into the performance of different grass leys. It cannot be stressed enough the gulf which exists between a sample of silage from an old grass ley and one from a new reseed, poorer quality silages inevitably leading to poor performance and higher feed costs

We know every farm is different so we can mix an order to suit your requirements and production needs Just call us, its no trouble.

  • Provides good early spring growth for early cutting.
  • AberZeus top performing intermediate ryegrass variety.
  • Fast growing with good spring yields and aftermath grazing potential.
  • Tetraploids increase WSC which aids silage fermentation, establish quickly and are more palatable.
  • Hybrid ryegrass varieties produce quick regrowth
  • Add white or red clover to increase protein content and improve intake.

  • Early heading varieties in this mixture will provide quality grazing throughout the season with the option to close up for a late first cut in mid-summer.
  • This ley gives a very dense and highly productive sward with great persistence.
  • Hybrid ryegrass provides better ground cover and improves yield in second and third years.
  • Aber varieties provide excellent yields and D-value
  • Timothy helps fill summer gaps.

  • Silage mixture for intensive situations where nitrogen use is high and Timothy and white clover are therefore unsuitable.
  • A combination of some of the best varieties on the Recommended List gives excellent long term growth.
  • A high proportion of high sugar varieties for efficient production.
  • Aberzeus is an oustanding variety, ranking highest in annual yields, in the top two for ground cover with excellent disease resistance.

  • An excellent dual purpose ley suitable for cattle or sheep.
  • Timothy is an ideal choice for colder and more exposed sites.
  • Diploids are developed to suit wetter growing conditions and produce a dense sward.
  • This mixture supports good ground cover and is long lasting.
  • Clover assists in the palatability and density of the sward, improving intake.
  • High diploid content promotes good tillering.

  • A long term mixture with later varieties is more suitable.
  • Very leafy producing a lush, dense sward with excellent persistency.
  • High diploid content produces a thick, dense sward for better ground cover and provides longer term grazing.
  • Later ryegrass varieties are more hardy.

  • If a sward is damaged and becomes open, it allows weeds and unsown species to invade.
  • Overseeding will quickly check this and maintain productivity by increasing both yield and quality.
  • A simple but effective way to rejuvenate damaged, or old grass leys, without the cost of a complete reseed.
  • Can also be used in poached gateways and worn areas, where ringfeeders have been sited, to bring areas back into production.
  • The large seeded and vigorous strains of tetraploid ryegrass establish quickly and are more able to out compete weed existing grasses.
