Sheep and Lambs

As well as the benefits of rapid re-growth and an extended grazing season that Matrix offers, the mixture includes perennial ryegrasses and clover varieties that will tolerate close grazing.

Additionally, seed in the Matrix Sheep and Lamb mixture is treated with Headstart and Integral to help improve establishment.

Limagrain's Ian Misselbrook said: “Following on from the success of the original Matrix seed mixtures, Limagrain has introduced Matrix Sheep and Lamb. The formulation consists of tetraploid perennial ryegrass varieties which offer a more prostrate habit, and so are ideal for grazing by sheep. The white clover blend included in the mixture is highly stoloniferous and also small-leaved, and so will persist well under close grazing.”

Sheep farmers wanting to include chicory in the ley are advised to add Grasslands Choice Chicory into the drill with the new grass seed mixture, or for better long term management, to sow the chicory in strips through the field.

For more information on the Matrix Sheep and Lamb grass seed mixture, farmers should contact Limagrain UK on 01472 371471.
