Hurricane III

High performance catch crop Ryegrass

Ideal when you need grass in a hurry or if you want optimum performance for 6-18 months. Hurricane III is for heavy cuts of silage plus spring and autumn grazing where required. Now with a new high performance and persistent diploid Westerwold Ryegrass. 

All varieties are selected for combined high yield in the year of sowing, very big early 1st cut the following season, plus the ability to last until the end of that season, if required.

1) Spring Planting for maximum yield in the year of sowing, potentially a more flexible alternative to wholecrop or maize. Hurricane III mixtures are widely used for accumulated summer silage cuts, plus standing haylage for out-wintering.

2) Summer-Autumn Planting for impressive growth for autumn grazing or cutting followed by massive spring yield potential. Big 1st cut with the potential to produce silage or hay through until the following autumn.

From an autumn sowing, Hurricane III produced 21% higher yield than the control Italian at 1st cut on 22nd April. An extra 0.84 tonnes dry matter/ha or 2.8 tonnes of 30% dry matter silage.

Minimum Cutting Height: 4 inches (10 cm)
