This blend combines millet with chicory and white clover, increasing the quality of the crop and therefore animal performance over a stand alone millet crop. Shirohie millet has been a popular summer crop to sow over many years. It's fast to establish, is heat tolerant and can produce quick green feed during the summer depending on rainfall availability or irrigation.

  • Diamondback moth, cabbage moth and cabbage white butterfly resistant
  • Outstanding bulk summer feed with excellent regrowth even under hot conditions, given moisture availability
  • Provides a strong chicory and clover based pasture for ryegrass to be direct drilled the following autumn
  • Quick transition from summer crop to winter/spring pasture, minimising the downtime period from autumn sowing to grazing
