Thumpa is selected for rapid establishment and high yield - classic qualities of being a tetraploid Italian ryegrass. Quick growth ensures early feed for grazing or silage options and its late flowering characteristics keep the pasture yields up right through until later in the season. Ideal for rotational grazing, Thumpa is an excellent winter crop solution for Australian and New Zealand farmers.

25-30 kg/ha alone
15-25 kg/ha with clovers
