Souwest Pasture Mix™

For Grazing Silage and Hay Production

The PDF file linked above contains the most up to date information on Souwest Pasture Mix™

For early production dry seed prior to the break where paddocks are clean, and you are comfortable with the risk.

Ensure plants are not prone to pulling then graze at 6 to 8cm high to increase tiller density. Then implement a rotational grazing program through winter and spring.
Cut mid spring for silage, late spring for hay or lock up for seed set.

Souwest Pasture Mix™ components

Roper Perennial Ryegrass

Deep rooted perennial ryegrass that can work as an annual or a perennial where there is adequate summer moisture.

Abundant Tetraploid Annual Ryegrass

High quality, high yielding and long growing season. Excellent vigour with high stress and disease tolerance.

Dargo Diploid Annual Ryegrass

The diploid addition provides for greater adaptability with high winter and early spring production and being a shorter season variety compliments the Abundant for earlier productivity.

Black and White Seeded Subterranean Clovers

Will produce across a wide range of soils and farming systems.

Aerial seeded Clovers

Arrowleaf, Balansa Clover, Crimson Clover and Persian Clovers Provide a continuity of early and late feed.

Souwest Pasture Mix was developed to suit a wide range of farming systems and soils types in the 550mm plus rainfall zones. Souwest Pasture Mix contains proven varieties that have been selected to perform in our unique Western Australia environment of soils and farming conditions through the medium to high rainfall zones.

The Souwest Pasture Mix is ideally suited to a broad range of farmers whom are looking for a blend of ryegrass and clover that will provide a balanced pasture during the growing season. Where managed appropriately the Souwest Pasture Mix should continue to provide high quality pasture into the following years.

  • Recommended pH Rate: 5+
  • Recommended Rainfall Rate: 550mm+
  • Recommended Sow Rate: 18 to 25 kgs/ha.

(Increased sowing rates will increase interplant competition during establishment offering earlier grazing and higher dry matter production where supported with increased fertiliser).

Please note that occasionally some varieties in our mix will be replaced with a like-for-like variety where the original is not available or not easily accessible. Varieties in the mix will be specified on the bag label.
