An excellent strategy for full-season forage production, this mix capitalizes on the vastly different growth periods of three winter annual grasses: spring oats, triticale, and annual ryegrass. Maximize grazing days with Double Play! Ideal for grazing or baleage, not recommended for dry hay.
Spring oats jump quickly out of the gate and with adequate moisture and will be ready to graze in 45-55 days. They may winter kill if temperatures stay in the teens for several days.
A cold-tolerant small grain with a wide leaf that grows in cooler weather, providing forage in mid-winter.
Ryegrass produces a massive fibrous root system, tolerates traffic and provides quality yield in mid-spring through early summer.
Drill at 0.5-0.75” depth. Calibrate your drill to ensure you have an accurate rate. Broadcasting is not recommended due to the size of the triticale and spring oat seed.
|Seeding Rate - Drilled||75-120 lbs/ac|
|Target Harvest Height||8-15" grazing or 15-25" chop|
