Cocksfoot

SF Greenly

soft cocksfoot

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.

Features Benefits
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
