Overseeding Leys

Overseeding mixtures offer a quick, low cost, low risk solution to problematic or ‘tired’ leys. These can be leys that are damaged, worn or perhaps new plantings that have not taken well. For example to revitalise a ley in spring post grazing and pre-cutting.

This is not usually a long term solution but these mixtures provide a boost until the time is right to re-seed. Shorter term grasses are best suited for overseeding and clover can be included to improve soil fertility.

Arrow Short Term

Perfect for dairy, beef and sheep whether cutting or grazing. The mixture has a combination of Italian and Hybrid Ryegrasses used to boost existing leys and improve response to Nitrogen inputs over a short term period.
