A fresh collection of top grass seed mixtures is included in LG Monarch's 2020 grass seeds catalogue.

Of particular relevance for a quality silage mixture is the top performing Italian ryegrass variety, Messina. The variety which is available exclusively through Limagrain, is a tetraploid Italian ryegrass with the highest yields in the year of sowing and the first year harvest among other varieties on the recommended UK lists. It also has one of the highest ME yield on the list, reflecting its potential feed value in livestock diets.

Quality silage also carries the LGAN accreditation, denoting its proven agronomic and feed value characteristics.

LG Monarch has also highlighted other LGAN accredited mixtures in its new catalogue, for grazing, cutting or dual purpose. These include LGAN Intensive Grazing, LGAN Silage and Grazing, LGAN Matrix 40 and LGAN Multigraze.

“The LGAN accreditation helps farmers and growers in selecting mixtures that have a proven performance record in the UK for yield and feed value characteristics,” says Limagrain’s John Spence.

“They have been trialled at our UK Innovation site, alongside other commercially available grass seed mixtures, and have performed well across the board, reflecting their superior growth and nutritional traits.”
