Feed crop production




The food crop mixtures are principally suitable for the cultivation at all arable locations. Good water supply is advantageous for all mixtures, but turf and soil which tends to retain water are lesser suited. Depending on the individual mixtures, they provide usage periods of one vegetation period (annual) up to more than two main usage years (perennial) in paddock grass mixtures as well as in clover grass mixtures.

The variety recommendation for ryegrass considers diploid as well as tetrapolid types. Tetratploid types are characterised by strong individual plants with minimal sprout density and higher sugar content and diploid types by a higher dry substance content.
