Tonic plantain is a valuable year-round grazing herb, providing strong cool season growth, key minerals as well as excellent dry matter production, particularly in drier, less fertile conditions. It is adaptable to a wide range of environments and soil conditions with a deep root system for added drought tolerance.
Tonic plantain is highly palatable and proves ideal for sheep, beef and dairy farmers in improving overall livestock production and performance.
