Super Quick Forage
Adding a fast growing Westerwold ryegrass companion crop to your regular forage seed mix will offer protection to any new ley, nursing it to full growth by suppressing weeds.
There are plenty of other benefits too. Westerwolds is very quick to establish, meaning it will provide earlier grazing, and since it’s very palatable the stock will eat it right down, preventing it from competing with the mixture after it’s fulfilled its purpose.
At £7.50 an acre, it’s a cost-effective way of maximising yield, controlling weeds, and getting the most from your forage mix.
