Mainstar forage rape is Agricom's new summer crop option for farmers looking to be more productive and icrease efficiency in their farming systems.
Mainstar forage rape has been extensively trialled under animal grazing systems with excellent farmer feedback reinforcing our trial results, Mainstar was chosen to be the next step in the forage rape market.
Early users of Mainstar forage rape have experienced the standout characteristics from our early trial work. Mainstar in its first season of performance has been defined by very leafy crops that are highly palatable, has excellent regrowth potential and has tolerated aphid attack better compared to other brassicas on the same farms.
The most talked about point of Mainstar forage rape is that its stock acceptance has been outstanding. This improves acceptance is due to increased palatability which results in the animal making more meat, wool, or milk. Mainstar has very high levels of edible drymatter and when Mainstar is grazed hard, the plants have the ability to recover and provide strong regrowth for multiple grazing's, a valuable trait for our farming systems.
