Cropping: Seeds...

All our forage seeds are sourced from Horizon Seeds, the largest independent seed merchant in the UK. All our grass seeds are recommended by HVG, SAC or AFBI.

Probably as important as the above, we are constantly trialling varieties under actual farming conditions.

TRIUMPH CLAMP FILLER THE TOP YIELDING DEMONSTRATION PLOT AT SCOTGRASS 2010

Triumph Clamp Filler is a short-term grass-only seed mixture consisting of four Italian ryegrasses and a hybrid ryegrass.They have a close range of D value dates so that farmers can choose when best to take the first cut of silage for the optimum combination of yield and forage quality.

Hugh McClymont farm manager said: "The sward has developed some tremendous bulk this past few weeks, with 35m3/ha [3000 gallons/acre] of slurry spread in early March and 60kgN/ha [48units/acre] inorganic fertiliser applied, also in March. Now it looks to be doing what it says on the tin, it's a ley that would be a good clamp filler."
