The Brome blend is perfectly suited to the equine industry due to the grass species in this blend having exceptional tolerance to hard grazing. The main component is Exceltas coloured brome which is highly productive densely tillered winter active grass. It is combined with cocksfoot which is extremely persistent once established providing a strong grass base pasture through autumn, winter and spring. Lucerne and sub clover are also included in the blend to increase the quality. This blend is suited to free draining soils and will not tolerate low lying areas that wet during winter. These varieties are slower to establish so particular care must be taken at establishment stage.
