Latest Grass and Clover Breeding Included in New Seeds Mixtures

An updated catalogue of quality grass and clover seeds mixtures launched for the 2013 season by British Seed Houses includes access to some of the highest ranking British-bred perennial and hybrid ryegrass varieties as well as the newly available long-lasting red clover and an extended organic range.

Featuring strongly throughout the mixtures are intermediate and late heading perennial ryegrasses from the IBERS Aberystwyth University Aber® High Sugar Grass (Aber HSG) breeding programme, with AberGreen, AberMagic and AberBite amongst the highly ranked varieties included. Specialist grazing and dual purpose leys are available with or without white clover and Puna II perennial chicory is also an option with these mixtures. Cutting leys include the top-rated Aber HSG hybrid ryegrasses AberEcho or AberEve. The first commercially available long-lasting red clover, AberClaret, provides the option of a 4-5 year high protein quality silage ley for the first time.
