Agronomic features

  • This pasture is free of clover and ryegrass and has been designed as a low protein, high fibre perennial pasture mix suitable for the grazing of horses. High-quality blend of perennial grasses, including:
    • Prairie Grass (for autumn/winter/spring growth)
    • Brome and Tall Fescue (for spring/summer/autumn growth)
    • Cocksfoot
    • Yorkshire Fog
    • Timothy
    • Browntop
  • Sow in early autumn or spring, at the recommended rate of 35 kg per ha. Sow at a depth of approximately 15mm. This seed mix is also suitable for spray/drill method of establishment.  Rotational grazing will greatly assist pasture persistence.
  • For rapid establishment, sow in a firm, fine and moist seedbed, free of weeds. Fertilise with nitrogen, phosphate and potash (e.g. Cropmaster).
  • Use a top dressing of superphosphate or Cropmaster six months after sowing and each subsequent year.
