Brome grasses, cocksfoot, tall fescue and other seed
Atom Prairie, Bareno Pasture, Gala Grazing, Matua Prairie
ATOM Praire Grass
- Suitable for medium to long term pastures.
- Large leaved with upright growth habit.
- Low tiller density requires rotational grazing to persist.
- Requires free draining soils with at least moderate fertility to perform well.
- Provides good cool season growth.
BARENO Pasture Brome
- Bred for use in summer-dry free draining soils.
- Tolerates set stocking or rotational grazing.
- Palatable through all seasons, even when seed heads are present.
- Establishes better in cultivated seed bed than direct drilled.
GALA Grazing Brome
- Dense fine tillered growth enhances persistence under hard climatic and grazing conditions.
- Will not perform well in wet, heavy soils.
- Shows good autumn recovery with good winter and early spring growth.
- Requires regular grazing to maintain yield and quality.
MATUA Praire Grass
- Winter active, with large leaves and erect growth habit.
- Performs better in moderate to high fertility free drained soils.
- Good palatability even when gone to head.
- Rotational grazing rather than set stocking will give better persistence.
Ella, Greenly, Kara, Safin, Tekapo, Vision, Wana
- Finer leaved and less clumpy than traditional varieties.
- Good all round yield with good summer growth.
- Bred for compatibility with ryegrasses in a pasture mix.
- Can be sown on better soil types without becoming too dominant.
- Robust, fine leaved with upright growth habit.
- Bred for quick establishment.
- Main production spring, summer and autumn.
- Suitable for all grazing systems.
- Large leaved with erect growth habit and medium tiller density.
- Rapid establishment for a cocksfoot.
- Cool season advantage.
- Compatible with ryegrass, clover and herbs.
- Super-fine leaved variety.
- High dry matter yield with excellent early spring growth.
- Fine leaved earlier flowering variety suitable in low/medium fertility soils.
- Densely tillered it will persist under set stocking or hard rotationally grazed sheep systems.
- Excellent drought tolerance and persistence.
- Slower establishment requires careful early grazing.
- High yielding over all seasons.
- Suited to set stocking or rotational grazing.
- Compatible with other species in pasture mixes.
- Low crowned and densely tillered.
- Older variety that is very persistent when established.
- Tolerates hard grazing and hard climatic conditions.
- Suited to sheep and cattle grazing.
Advance Max P, Finesse Q, Quantum II Max P
ADVANCE Max P
- Moderate leaf size with late heading date.
- Low leaf strength with very good palatability.
- Extensive root system gives some tolerance against insect damage and enables growth to continue in drier conditions.
- Allows good legume content in sward.
- Densely tillered with soft leaves.
- Semi-late heading
- High quality growth spread across all seasons.
- Suitable for all types of stock.
QUANTUM II/Max P
- Early flowering with summer activity.
- Improved leaf softness.
- Good resistance to disease and excellent dry matter production.
Maru phalaris, Timothy
- Drought resistant and very persistent when established.
- Vigorous growth in autumn, winter and spring.
- Large leaves supported by a deep penetrating root system.
- May cause phalaris staggers if sown as a sole species – best used as a component in a pasture mix.
- Provides a high quality, palatable grass in a pasture mix.
- Late to start growth in spring but maintains quality even in the seed head stage.
- More suited to moist heavy soils, or pastures under irrigation.
- Small/medium leaf size and densely tillered.
Charger chicory, Chico chicory, Choice chicory, Tuatara Plantain
- High quality and high yielding with deep root system.
- Fast establishing with leafy, upright growth.
- Ideal for dry summer conditions.
- Can be used as a component of a perennial pasture mix.
- Bred for high dry matter production.
- Has improved cool season growth and good recovery after grazing.
- Erect growth habit, suitable for pasture mixes.
- Can be sown as sole species for forage crop, although clover should also be sown with it.
- Performs and persists better under rotational grazing, with good regrowth.
