Energy Dense Forage The Brassica family provide rampant growth potential along with very high energy levels. A little goes a long way with Forage Brassica – use as a small yet important part of annual forages. Annual Legumes Annual legumes are a most important component of annual forage seed mixtures. They can provide very high protein feed and additionally, if properly inoculated, can provide the potential for high volumes of Nitrogen Fixation for subsequent crops. At Performance Seed, we have selected some of the very best annual legumes available in the forage seed market. Vetch Annual Vetches are well suited to the Western Prairies and provide exceptional yield and quality. Hairy Vetch has very large seed and needs to be inoculated. High nitrogen fixation capacity, Hairy Vetch is an important part of annual forage mixtures however is quite expensive and needs adequate planting rate (very large seed size) and must be inoculated to benefit from legume value.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”1882″ img_size=”full” onclick=”link_image” image_hovers=”false”][vc_column_text] Clover Non-bloat, high quality annual legume has exceptional cold temperature tolerance when temperature dips below freezing and normal growth continues.
- Annual Forage Mixtures – providing highly nutritious Forage to maximize grazing capacity
- Nurse Crop to establish Alfalfa – trial results show Frosty can improve first year yields when combined with Alfalfa seed during establishment and producing similar forage quality
- Forage yield booster – planting into low performing alfalfa stands will increase forage production
