Plantinum

Grass mixes for every location and every situation

Managing grassland as a feedstock is a challenging task in dairy farming. Plantinum grass mixes help you achieve optimum results for dairy cows. The mixes are constantly evolving.


Plantinum – best milk right from the outset.

We have matched the Plantinum mix concept with our customers’ wishes and requirements. That’s why we only use German rye grasses suitable for marshland recommended by the chambers of agriculture. A multi-year arable feed cropping mix with high-quality clover supplements the protein content.

Mid and late rye grass varieties

The Plantinum mix concept is based on high-energy, rust-resistant varieties of German rye grass. Other high-quality feed production varieties complete the concept. Using only mid and late rye grass varieties ensures uniform maturity in the crop and a slower deterioration in energy densities. This provides a significantly more extensive harvest or utilization window.

High nutrient density

A high staple feed performance requires a maximum staple feed intake with very high nutrient density.

Plantinum mixes provide staple feed with the optimum palatability, high energy concentration and premium crude protein content. We recommend the optimally balanced Plantinum mix for every location and every situation.

Voluntary mix check

Seed mixes with controlled quality
The Chamber of Agriculture recommends the mix based on the species and variety composition. It uses the Chamber Seal in Magenta for recommended mixes.

High-performance seeding mixes play a key role in yield and quality assurance on permanent grassland and arable pasture. This is why AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG undergoes a voluntary mix check with the aim of ensuring production of high-quality staple feed by using high quality sowing seed and overseeding mixes.
