Brunswick Oats (Forage Type)

Brunswick Oat is a new mid-late flowering forage oat with impressive resistance to leaf rust. It is a very upright variety with high examples of tillering. Brunswick has shown longer grazing periods than earlier flowering types. This has indicated that when grown for conserved fodder it has greater yields.

Millets

Millets are a group of highly variable small-seeded grasses, widely grown around the world as cereal crops or grains for fodder. The most widely grown millet is pearl millet, which is an important crop in India and parts of Africa. Other varieties available are Jap, Shirohie, Siberian, and White French.

Black Oats

Oats are a robust dual purpose cereal for graziers around Australia that can be grazed during the winter months prior to being shut up to be cut for hay. Oats are a great source of on-farm hay production that can be sown as a monoculture or blended with other species such as ryegrass and clovers to increase yield and quality. Varieties include Saia and Swan.

Ryecorn

Ryecorn (forage) is a reliable winter season performer, delivering a quick winter feed option that is ready to graze within 4-8 weeks. Excellent pasture yields are available with Forage Ryecorn when combined with high performing annual ryegrass. It can also fill the feed gap by sowing with Italian ryegrass to extend spring growth.

Wheat

Wheat  is primarily grown to increase organic matter, break up dense subsoil and crowd out weeds. It is critical to choose the optimal planting time. Most Australian wheat varieties flower in response to the accumulation of warm temperatures. Many varieties also have a cold temperature requirement, which is important in some winter wheats, and some varieties flower in response to longer days.

Barley

Barley(Hordeum vulgare), a member of the grass family, is a major cereal grain grown in temperate climates globally. It was one of the first cultivated grains, and is used as a successful animal fodder.

Sunflower

Sunflower has an extensive and prolific root system and its ability to soak up residual nutrients out of reach for other commonly used covers or crops. This species can also take advantage of short growing seasons. Pollinators and beneficials such as bees are often found in fields of sunflower and in following crops. Because sunflowers can add significant biomass production in just a short growing season, they can also serve as additional forage or silage for livestock feed.
