Hay

Hay

Specialist hay production requires specialist mixtures.

For hay to wilt down evenly, the use of 100% diploid species is needed.

Tetraploids are a bigger leafier plant with more water in their cell walls. If both diploids and tetraploids are used then you will get an uneven conditioning of the sward.

When reseeding the hay mixtures below, they need to be autumn sown so the plant goes through a vernalisation period and produces a stem and a seed head the following year.

If spring sown, the plant may only produce lush leafy forage in the year of sowing.
