BROADSWORD HI-PRO

RED AND WHITE CLOVER OPTION TO ADD FLEXIBILITY

A blend of Hybrid and Perennial Ryegrasses with Festulolium and both Red and White Clover for outstanding performance

  • Erect disease resistant and vigorous grasses to compete with Clover
  • Very adaptable and denser than Sabre to enhance grazing performance
  • High sugar levels to aid silage fermentation and palatability
  • Enhanced protein levels and drought resistance for adverse sites
  • Trials show a yield advantage of up to 2 tonnes of DM/ha in the second harvest year compared to no Clover version

Sowing Rate 12 to 14 kg/acre

Pack Size 20kg


Red Clover mixtures for higher protein and reduced nitrogen input

The advantages of Red Clover are not always realised but in summary, offer three times the yield of a large leaved White Clover.

This yield comes at a cost however, as the species is not as persistent as White Clover and is therefore best used in 2-4 year leys.

A long, penetrating tap root allows Red Clover to withstand drought and be suited to lighter soils.
