Talk to us about other crops.
We are pleased to provide our customers with custom forage and cover crop blends as well as Alfalfa seed and blends.
Peas are often added to oats or barley forage crops in order to increase the protein content and palatability of the forage.
Our dual purpose hay and pasture blends are suitable for haying and some grazing. These blends include a combination of native grasses. Some include a small amount of alfalfa and some do not.
With a higher alfalfa content, these blends are suitable for hay but not for grazing.
Our alfalfa seed contains only high purity and germination seed lots and are treated with Apron XL for improved seedling vigour. Alfalfa blends are recommended if you have variable land as the different combination of alfalfa in each blend will help you maximize yield across your whole field.
