Rainfall / Irrigation Rainfall400mm+
A low cost option for farmers wanting to grow bulk winter feed and hay in areas of approximately 400 mm+ rainfall. The Double Crop and New Tetila ryegrasses will establish very quickly and produce good amounts of quality feed for winter grazing, silage or haymaking.
When direct drilled, old pasture and weeds must be sprayed out and then seed drilled with appropriate fertiliser rates. It is important to be constantly on the lookout for pests such as red legged earthmites and to spray when appropriate with an insecticide.
