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.

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.

  • Udine provides an outstanding yield in the year of sowing.
  • Remember it is an annual so if it seeds it will not re-grow.

  • The combination of hybrids and red clover provides a premium quality ley for 3 years.
  • Can also be fed with maize and whole crop silage.
  • Excellent for fattening lambs on the aftermath.
  • Improved milk and meat production through higher intakes.
  • Clover has the ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen reducing the amount of bought in nitrogen.

  • Provides good early spring growth for early cutting.
  • Aston Crusader produces high annual yields and good early spring growth.
  • 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 and are more resistant to drought
  • Add white 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.
  • AberGreen provides excellent yields and ground cover.
  • 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.
  • Includes  high sugar variety for efficient production.
  • Glenariff provides an excellent late summer yield for optimising third cut.

  • 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.

  • Increases grazing season, maxmising late grazing.
  • This sward will be persistent and very dense for many years.
  • If closed up for cutting the ley will provide a bulky mid season silage yield.
  • Tetraploid grasses will increase palatability, improving intake by livestock.

  • Heavy, wet soil means the ground is easily poached so in such conditions it is important to select species which suit the conditions.
  • Ideal where 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.
  • Clover provides more protein content and fixes nitrogen for land which is difficult to access.

  • 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.
