SPECIALIST UNDERSOWING MIXTURE FOR MAIZE
Maize Master is a specifically formulated grass mixture to undersow within maize crops to improve travelling conditions at the time of harvest, provide ground cover over the winter, retain residual nutrients and supply additional forage within a rotation.
- Pack size: 15kg / 3 acre
- Seed rate: 5kg per acre
- Maize Master can be sown when maize is drilled, or at the 6-8 leaf stage.
This dedicated mixture is comprised of three key components:
35% LOFA festulolium which is a genetic cross between
a fescue and a perennial ryegrass. The main agronomic attributes which are carried through from this hybridisation are stress tolerance, yield and rooting capability. Enhanced rooting capabilities play a vital part in ensuring soil erosion is minimised and residual nutrients retained during the winter months.
35% TETRAGRAZE hybrid ryegrass enhances overall yield potential within the mixture and carries just enough aggression within the formulation to ensure it establishes well but does not outcompete the maize when undersown. This variety, although a hybrid, also has excellent ground cover ability.
30% ASPECT perennial ryegrass is a tetraploid with superb ground cover capabilities. This additional ground cover is key to ensuring soil structures are not damaged at the time of harvest, by improving travelling conditions for machinery.
