SF Moskito

For grazing and fodder conservation

SF Moskito is a new winter wheat specifically selected for grazing and fodder conservation.
It is an awnless variety with good tillering ability and more prostrate habit and will be more palatable than awned varieties when made into silage. SF Moskito has good feed quality and can be planted early (late summer/early autumn) particularly in areas that receive early autumn rain or have irrigation. Being a winter type, it requires cold vernalisation, so will not flower from early plantings like spring wheats.

It is ideally suited to conserving as whole crop silage at milky dough stage of crop.
