      Summerhill

      Summerhill is an agri grass seed mixture for farmers who are aiming for one or two high-quality silage cuts followed by the best possible aftermath grazing.

      The first cut will be in late May with the option of a second cut approximately four to six weeks later, or alternatively, commence rotational grazing. 

      Quality cutting and grazing mixture

      The heading date average for Summerhill is 1 June for Northern Ireland. When cutting for silage, aim to cut five to ten days before the average heading date for optimum quality.

      Key benefits in summary

      • Long-lasting ley with outstanding quality
      • Good yield credentials for grazing and cutting
      • Balance of diploid and tetraploid varieties
      • High palatability and dry matter intakes
      • Reduced nitrogen losses to the environment
      • Excellent mixture of intermediate and late varieties
