Northern NSW

    Description:

     

    Suited to the heavier, black self mulching and grey cracking floodplain country of Northern NSW. The productivity of Rhodes and Panic is enhanced by the black soil adaptation of creeping bluegrass, increasing persistence and ground cover in very wet or dry seasons. The late season quality of the grasses is complemented by a range of summer and winter growing legumes to keep protein in the pasture and nitrogen cycling. A very productive mix for finishing cattle in summer or building a large volume of good stand-over feed on the heavier floodplains.
