Aber HSG Multi-Species Grazing
Aber HSG Multi-Species Grazing is a multi-species grass seed mix for lower input systems where improving soil health is a priority.
Ultimately, it provides a long-term multi-species sward that will be ideal for rotational and set-stocked grazing.
Aber HSG Multi-Species Cutting contains vetch and annual white clover to boost dry matter production in the first year, as well as a mixture of high sugar grasses, legumes and herbs. The mixture of plants within the grass sward drives dry matter production.
Multi-species grass seed
Areas of poor soil health also benefit from the plants’ different abilities to fix and lift nitrogen, with their water uptake increasing performance in dry conditions. Aber HSG Multi-Species Grazing produces a dense multi-species sward that resists poaching.
