Grower’s Comments

““We first tried 20ha of Avitus in 2018 and we grew more than 10 times the area last season which I think says it all!

The variety suits both our production and environmental needs very well and an early harvesting means we can establish a cover of Italian ryegrass, keeping the soil much drier and firmly in place over winter.

Avitus has done us proud again this season, averaging 13.5 t DM/ha in just 20 weeks with a high digestibility and palatability.””
