Imperial: Star RatingImperial: Mixture Options
Our best-selling long term mix: long term cutting and grazing.
Average heading date: 5th June
‘No Clover’ available | Chicory available

Imperial is a long term dual purpose mix. It will produce excellent first cut quality silage along with quality grazing. The mix contains all late perennial ryegrass and so is less likely to produce stemmy seed heads in the summer, maintaining a lush leafy sward throughout the growing season. A clover blend is available to suit a wide range of grassland systems and provides the benefit of soil N fixation. This blend will also help to increase protein levels. Timothy is used as it is a palatable grass, which helps fill the summer gap and thrives on wetter soil types.
