Profile

COUNTRY Grassland 2470 is a mixture consisting of perennial ryegrass, red- and white clover and is especially suited for perennial organic field forage cultivation on all ryegrass-compatible sites. It is characterized by rapid youth development, high protein yield and high forage quality. Besides using it for cutting, it is also possible to use it for grazing, green manure and overseeding of red and white clover.

  • High protein content
  • High forage quality
  • For overseeding red and white clover

All organic mixtures are produced with 100 % organic content, if possible, in accordance with the EU Organic Farming Regulation 2018/848. For mixtures with at least 70% organic content, the farmer must obtain approval from his inspection body for the use of the conventional content before sowing, starting with production in January 2022. We aim to use at least 2 varieties per ripening group for mix proportions of more than 20 % of one species and for German ryegrass. The choice of varieties may vary depending on production. If individual species or varieties are not available, they are replaced by equivalent ones. The seed strengths are calculated for an optimal seedbed; in case of poor external conditions - such as insufficient seedbed, late sowing date, insufficient nutrient supply and unfavourable weather - the seed strengths should be adjusted upwards.

Deutsche Saatveredelung AG excludes adhesion for damage or claims for damages, resulting of the use for the variety specified in this description.
