Prairie Grass

SF Jeronimo

prairie grass

SF Jeronimo is a new highly winter active prairie grass with a broad fit for pasture systems where rotational grazing is used. It has similar maturity to Matua and has excellent capacity for re-seeding into pasture swards.

It has much improved autumn/winter activity to ensure more feed when it is most needed.

SF Jeronimo can be sown as the sole grass at high rates for intensive dairy production to provide a boost to autumn winter production. It is especially well suited to the sub tropics.

It can also be used as a component of cocksfoot or tall fescue based perennial pastures to provide re-seeding into the pasture sward, especially around stock camps. It can also be used in mixes with lucerne to provide a balanced pasture with more winter production and no need for expensive winter cleaning.
