Short Term Leys

1 to 2 years
Short term leys offer the highest possible yields in the shortest time and are becoming increasingly important with modern farming systems as grass is brought into arable rotation.

These types of leys are vigorous, palatable, high volume crops which help increase milk and meat production. They also benefit soil by producing large root masses that will compete with black grass and help break its life cycle over 2 years.
