- Combination of high ranking varieties
- Long term grazing mixture
- Sow 14kgs/acre
A multi-species sward has a mixture of three or more forage species present in a sward. The growth characteristics of these species will complement each other which results in increased productivity. Multi-specie mixtures are a combination of a range of diverse forage species such as plantain or chicory, all of which will have their own specific characteristics and are very beneficial for biodiversity providing a variety of flowering plants for pollinators. The swards can produce similar DM yields to perennial ryegrass swards without the same level of inorganic nitrogen fertiliser application rates. The complementary characteristics of different plant types, allow leaf and root architecture to maximise the use of light, moisture and nutrients.
