Traditional Hay Maker - Long Term Hay Ley - 70% ORGANIC


This traditional hay meadow is very long lasting, although slower to establish than a straight ryegrass ley, it will go on to provide good quality, bulky hay crops with low disease levels for many years. Once cut it can be used for aftermath grazing.The robust inclusion of Timothy in this mix provides a high fibre forage and a coarse hay sample, expect Timothy to feature heavily in the sward from year two onwards. A small quantity of Sweet Vernal Grass can be included per acre to give the hay sample a sweet smell or 'good nose'.
