Benefits

  • Species and varieties selected for wet soils, for example traditional flood plains and water meadows

  • Once established a productive meadow will evolve which will cope with occasional silt covering

  • This mixture is specifically developed to provide quality forage when sown in heavy land prone to waterlogging

  • Meadow fescue increases sward density

  • This mixture only contains long term, late heading and hardy grass species

  • Deep rooted species improve soil structure, increase field drainage and improve the mineral content of the forage

  • Late heading diploid perennial ryegrasses are the most suited perennial ryegrass for wetter conditions

  • Persistently flooded areas spring sowing is recommended to ensure establishment before winter flooding

  • Meadow Fescue and Timothy are the only other two species that will thrive in wetter conditions whilst still producing high yields and persistent sward.

  • Alsike clover is suited to a wide range of conditions and is tolerant of moderate flooding

  • Flexible mixture offering all seasons grazing and if shut up a hay or a later silage cut
