      Aber Red 5 HSG overcomes the normal restriction of red clover leys, extending the life of the red clover component beyond the normal 2-3 years up to 5 years with the inclusion of AberClaret.

      It is also now time to rethink the grasses that are paired with red clover. AberClaret can last 5 years, so the grasses must too. Aber Red 5, therefore, includes intermediate and late perennial ryegrass which will also improve silage quality, especially in the second cut.

      Key benefits in summary

      • Red clover with potential for five years’ persistency
      • 100% Aber HSG perennial grasses
      • Balance of diploid and tetraploid varieties compatible with long-lasting red clover
      • 150kgN/ha nitrogen fixed from red clover
      • Reduced nitrogen losses to the environment
      • Aim to cut red clover silage when 25% of the red clover plants are in flower
      • Aber High Sugar Grasses enhance fermentation, especially when red clover is included
