Top 5 Extend contains the highest performing varieties on the Teagasc PPI. Top 5 Extend is designed to achieve high animal performance through its exceptional quality and palatability. The varieties in this mixture excel in spring and autumn growth – meeting the demands of intensive grassland farmers while also providing the opportunity for a high yielding silage cut.

Optimum spread of heading dates within mixtures for grazing and cutting results in better performance of the leys. When cutting for silage, aim to cut 5-10 days before average heading date for optimum quality.

Sowing Time      April – September

Sowing Depth    10 -15mm

Sowing Instructions      Cultivate to achieve a fine, firm seed bed. Ploughing will help level rough fields. Sow in good conditions (warm with rain forecast), no deeper than 10-15mm. Roll well after sowing to ensure good soil/seed contact. Apply N, P & K as per soil test results and nitrates rules.

After sowing     Monitor for pest attack and take immediate action where necessary. Post emergence weed spray is essential approx. 5-6 weeks after establishment, prior to first grazing. Where clover is included in the sown mixture, use a clover safe spray.

Grazing: Graze the new reseeds frequently and at low covers (<1200 kg DM/ha) to assist in tillering and help create a dense sward.
