Dual purpose mixtures contain varieties of the highest ratings for total yield digestibility and sugar content to offer flexibility and maximise output for mixed farming systems.
A productive general purpose ley that offers complete flexibility for cutting and grazing. The extra diploid inclusion achieves a denser sward and increased longevity. This mixture is widely used in two cut silage systems plus autumn and winter sheep grazing. High sugar diploids, plus Timothy and White Clover, improve palatability and animal performance with tetraploids to increase total yield and maintain good D-values.

A general purpose ley with Hybrid Ryegrass added for faster spring growth and higher cutting yields. Suited for units where bulky crops of silage are required, this adaptive sward can also be used for intensive cattle grazing with an early turnout benefit. The deep rooting nature of the hybrid and perennial tetraploids make this sward ideal for light free draining and sandy loam soils.
