Medium Term Leys

3 to 4 years
Medium term grass mixtures are popular with many growers as they offer high potential yields with the benefits of some greater tillering varieties and ground coverage.

This means good cuts of silage or hay with high ‘D’ Value can be achieved and the ley will be capable of withstanding heavy grazing over winter months. The mixtures also provide the soil with a longer ‘break’ which supports the improvement of soil structure and the potential to increase yields from following crops.
