A versatile option for maximum forage yield plus an entry for reseeding on upland units. Arable Silage is simple to grow and can deliver huge crops of forage, growers can prioritise total yield, starch, protein, and the option to under sow when selecting a mixture.

A high yielding parent crop for undersowing with medium and long-term grass leys. This simple mixture allows daylight penetration to the bottom of the crop for undersown grasses to establish and contribute to the overall crop yield.

The inclusion of peas increases yield and protein content with the bonus of nitrogen fixation for improved soil fertility. This mixture can also be undersown but timely harvest is essential to protect succeeding ley.

Protein Plus.png

The combination of peas and vetch increases protein content and also brings additional diversity into the crop for extra yield and further nitrogen fixation.

Starch Plus.png

The inclusion of spring wheat offers higher starch content when harvest is timed accordingly. The vetch provides protein and retains moisture to aid fermentation.

Note: Catch Crop or Reseed Entry

All arable silage mixtures could be undersown with catch crop for autumn and spring grazing. Where heavy machinery is a concern, these crops can be used as an entry for an autumn reseed or a window to sow stubble turnips.
