SF Greenly is the first of a new type of soft leaf oceanic cocksfoot which can replace perennial ryegrass for intensive livestock production.
It should be sown at higher sowing rates to produce a fine, dense soft sward with no adverse animal health effects from endophyte and good resistance to pasture pests.
SF Greenly will offer a real alternative for areas where persistence of perennial ryegrass has been a problem with no higher per hectare seed cost.
It has good recovery after grazing even after summer dry and is high yielding with a soft leaf.
|New soft leaf technology||Ensures excellent palatability and quality. More feed eaten for conversion to meat or milk|
|Excellent production||Suited to all pasture seasons with good grazing recovery. Greater performance than standards over the warm seasons|
|Good persistence||A better option in marginal areas than perennial ryegrass and tall fescue|
|Mid-late maturity||Provides better quality fodder than earlier flowering types|
