High yielding, quick winter feed option

Southern Green ryecorn is an exceptionally fast establishing grazing option particularly when sown late into cold conditions. Southern Green can be up and ready to graze three weeks before oats and when managed correctly can offer multiple grazing opportunities.

Unlike common ryecorn, Southern Green produces high quality feed at a time when feed is in short supply. Southern Green can be used on its own or as part of a mixed pasture sward.

  • Can be sown with Italian ryegrass to extend spring growth
Sowing Guide
