Usage Guide

The best time of year for establishing seed is March - April and from last week July, August or mid-September at latest. Before sowing ensure the paddock is prepared by pH testing the soil, draining of heavy soil if required and removing weeds and stones etc. This will give the seed the best chances of growth. If sowing a new ley a rate of 12kg of seed per acre is recommended.

Product Questions

Your ryegrass with herbs are horses safe to graze on this shortly after seeing. The reason I ask is we only have a small pasture so do. It have the land to take horse off to another area whilst paddock rests say winter to spring
Question by: Trish wilding on 7 Mar 2022, 15:54
Thanks for your enquiry. After reseeding we recommend horses are kept off the grass for approximately 8 weeks. The grass is ready to be grazed when it stands the ‘Pull Test’; the grass blades can be pulled from the sward without removing the roots. Whilst the grass is establishing, ensure you have prepared alternative grazing area for the horses. As is natural with all reseeds, be prepared to take weed control measures 5 weeks after sowing by cutting the new ley. Most annual weeds will mow out.
